The resurfacing project is located in south Minneapolis on 38th St W from Lyndale Ave S to Nicollet Ave and was originally paved in 1960 or 53 years ago.

Construction Start Date:
Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin the week of April 22nd, 2013.  

Length of Construction:
The length of construction for this project will be approximately two weeks.

The work will be performed during full or partial road closures.  Please note that street parking will be impacted and short term intermittent access restrictions may occur.  When construction work will be done on a particular street in the project area, the street will be posted NO PARKING prior to work on that particular street.
