Project Scope

In 2021, the Minneapolis Public Work Department plans to reconstruct 2.24 miles of Grand Ave S between Lake St and 48th St W. Reconstruction projects include complete replacement of the street infrastructure including pavement, curb and gutter. Sidewalk and boulevard condition are evaluated and are often included in the street reconstruction as well. Street reconstruction often provides an opportunity for safety enhancements, greening and other amenities.
