Downtown streets closing tomorrow
Zombie Pub Crawl prompts closings
An event on Saturday, Oct. 15 is prompting several streets to close in downtown Minneapolis.
Although the Zombie Pub Crawl block party runs from 6 p.m. to midnight Saturday in the Warehouse District, the following streets will be closed from 8 a.m. Saturday to 8 a.m. Sunday to allow organizers time to prepare for and clean up after the event.
The following streets will close:
- First Avenue North from Sixth Street North to Third Street North (full closure, no vehicles allowed).
- First Avenue North from Sixth Street North to Seventh Street North (local access will be maintained).
- Sixth Street North from Hennepin Avenue to Second Avenue North (local access will be maintained).
- Fifth Street North from Hennepin Avenue to Second Avenue North.
- Fourth Street North from Hennepin Avenue to Second Avenue North.
In addition, all sidewalks along these streets will be closed from building face to building face in the event area. Access will be limited to people who pay the entry fee. Anyone who lives or works within the closure will be allowed access with proper identification.
Although a section of Fifth Street North will close to traffic, the METRO Green and Blue line trains will continue to operate on this street during the event.
A number of construction projects are affecting traffic in Downtown this season. To help drivers know about all of the current and upcoming work, the City has mapped these projects. Links to the maps are at www.minneapolismn.gov/publicworks/traffic.
