Detour Update: Hiawatha LRT Trail and Midtown Greenway Bryant Ave Ramp

Two closure and detour updates:

Hiawatha LRT Trail between 11th Avenue South and Norm McGrew Place

The Hiawatha LRT Trail between 11th Avenue South and Norm McGrew Place will be closed from Monday, June 11 at 7:00 a.m. through Tuesday, June 12 at 7:00 p.m. The official bicycle detour will follow 11th Avenue South, South Second Street and Chicago Avenue South. Pedestrians are encouraged to use Washington Avenue South instead of South Second Street.

The closure is related to work on the Central Corridor LRT line. During the closure crews will be constructing OCS foundations that will support light rail catenary lines. This closure is in addition to the existing long-term closure of the Hiawatha LRT Trail between 11th and 15th avenues.

Midtown Greenway Ramp at Bryant Avenue South

Starting Tuesday, June 12 the eastern portion of the Midtown Greenway ramp at Bryant Avenue South will temporarily close. The closure will last through December of 2012. The western portion of the Midtown Greenway ramp at Bryant Avenue South will remain open and serve as the official detour route.

The closure is related to the construction of the Track 29 Lofts. This construction will also result in temporary sidewalk closures along the 2800 blocks of Bryant and Aldrich avenues and along West 28th Street between Bryant and Aldrich avenues. The sidewalk closures will continue through the end of June of 2012.
