60th Street opens to traffic for first time since March 17 gas main fire

The street damaged by last months gas main fire in south Minneapolis is now open to traffic, restoring easy access to businesses in the area. City crews are done restoring 60th Street East between Nicollet Avenue and Interstate 35W. The exit to 60th Street from I-35W is also open, along with the onramp to the freeway.  

The March 17 fire left a gaping hole in 60th Street and caused extensive damage to underground utility pipes. After investigators were done examining the damaged gas main, repairs were made to the line and also to an underground water main and a storm sewer. Following the completion of that work, the street and curb were then replaced.

The traffic signal on 60th Street between Nicollet Avenue and the freeway is still out of service, and temporary stop signs remain in place. A replacement traffic signal is expected to be in operation by mid-May.
