Marquette and 2nd Ave S

Project Details

The City of Minneapolis, Public Works Department will be performing concrete pavement repairs on Marquette Ave S and 2nd Ave S between 1st Street S and 12th Street S. In preparation for construction work beginning in June 2018, pavement saw cutting is scheduled to start May 2018 and will be conducted during non-rush hour (9 am – 3 pm). While the city will strive to minimize construction-related impacts, increases in traffic congestion, noise, vibration, and dust in construction areas are to be expected during this time. See the Marquette & 2nd Ave S Fact Sheet for more information.
