Downtown East reconstruction
Starting the week of July 19, 2021, the City will fully reconstruct the entire right-of-way.
We'll reconstruct the roadway on:
- 10th Ave. S. from Washington Ave. to Third St. S.
- 12th Ave. S. from Washington Ave. to Third St. S.
- Third St. S. from 10th Ave. S. to 12th Ave. S.
We’ll install new:
- Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant pedestrian ramps
- Pavement markings
- Furnishing zones or boulevard space with street trees
And we’ll make improvements to:
- Existing pavement
- Curbs and gutters
We'll also evaluate options for new nonmotorized connections to the adjacent Hiawatha Light Rail Trail and 11th Ave. S. bikeway.
