18th Ave NE Reconstruction
(Johnson St NE to Stinson Blvd)
In 2020, the City of Minneapolis will be reconstructing 18th Ave NE in northeast Minneapolis between Johnson St NE and Stinson Blvd.
The City of Minneapolis is planning to reconstruct approximately 0.5 miles of 18th Avenue NE in the Northeast Park and Windom Park neighborhoods. The project will replace aging pavement and improve the right-of-way for all users and modes of travel. This project provides an opportunity to incorporate ADA compliant pedestrian ramps, address sidewalk obstructions and sidewalk/trail gaps, and add boulevard space with street trees. The project will connect into the recently constructed trail to west along 18th Ave NE.
The project includes full reconstruction of the entire right-of-way and will include filling sidewalk gaps, ADA pedestrian ramps, boulevard space, pavement, curb and gutter, and utility improvements. The project will also include new signage, new pavement markings, and improve non-motorized crossings to Northeast Minneapolis’ major retail center.
Approximately 0.5 miles of 18th Avenue NE between Johnson Street NE and Stinson Parkway.
Utility Construction on 18th Ave NE will begin Monday, March 30 and run through late May 2020.
CenterPoint Energy’s project is anticipated to last two months. Crews from Michels Corporation, CenterPoint Energy’s authorized contractor, will replace natural gas mains and connect natural gas service lines to the new mains.
18th Ave NE street reconstruction work is expected to start in mid-to late May as CenterPoint finishes their utility work.
On 18th Avenue NE, crews from Michels Corporation will begin at Stinson Parkway working west. Each block will be closed for approximately one to two weeks. Eastbound traffic will be detoured. CenterPoint will notify residents or business owners if the crews need to cross any driveways.
During construction, residents, businesses, and visitors may expect traffic detours, noise, vibration, and dust in work areas. In addition, temporary impacts such as lane restrictions, intersection reductions, parking restrictions or revised pedestrian and bicycle routes may be expected during construction. Property access will be maintained throughout construction. Specific construction staging and traffic detour information will be posted here as the project gets closer to construction.
Details on public meetings will be announced here.
