Detour Update: Park & Portland Avenues Closure Starting May 6

Beginning Monday, May 6, Park and Portland Avenue South will close to all through traffic between East 15th Street and East Franklin Avenue. The closure is expected to last through early August and is needed to preserve the bridge decks on the Park and Portland Avenue bridges spanning I-94 and I-35W. Bicycle and pedestrian traffic will be detoured to Chicago Avenue South. Additional alternative bicycle routes in and out of downtown include 1st/LaSalle Avenue South and 11th Avenue South. More information about the project can be found on the MnDOT website.
