Loring Park/North Loop High Volume Resurfacing

Project Type:
This is a paving resurfacing project. Resurfacing projects use a mill and overlay process. This process will consist of removing a portion of the existing asphalt pavement surface and placing a new surface over the entire street. The purpose of the resurfacing program is to extend the life of a roadway by approximately 10 years. Without this program, streets in the in the program would not see surface improvements for many years.

Maple St was originally paved in 1939 and sealcoated in 1981.
Hennepin was originally paved in 1986.
Harmon was originally paved in 1932 and sealcoated in 1982.
16th St N was originally paved in 1979.
Laurel Ave was originally paved in 1936 and sealcoated in 1988.

Project Limits:
The Loring Park/North Loop area is located near downtown and bounded on the north by Glenwood Ave on the east by 12th St, on the south by Loring Park and on the east by I-94.

Construction Start Date:
Scheduled to begin April 30th, 2014.
Project was complete on May 7, 2014.

Traffic Impact:
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.
Traffic on Hennepin will be reduced to one lane in each direction.
