Project Details

Overview

The City of Minneapolis proposes to reconstruct Hennepin Avenue South between Lake Street West and 36th Street West.

The proposed 0.75-mile long project is scheduled to occur over the course of the 2018 construction season and will consist of improvements to the roadway, sidewalk, and utilities. The scope of the project will encompass the entire right-of-way and include full removal of the existing street, subgrade correction, new pavement, curb and gutter, driveways, curb extensions, sidewalk as needed, utility work as needed, pavement markings, signals, and signage. The project will also include streetscape improvements including trees planted in the boulevard, where feasible, and pedestrian-level lighting.

City staff is currently in the preliminary stages of planning and design for the project, which will be accompanied by community outreach activities that will help inform and guide design concepts.
