North Loop

Project overview

In this ongoing street maintenance program, we replace the top layer of asphalt pavement. This extends the life of a street between larger reconstructions. The new pavement should last about 10 years.


In 2020, we resurfaced part of this project:

  • 4th St. N. from 5th Ave. to 10th Ave. N.
  • 8th Ave. N. from 2nd St. to 1st. St. N.
  • 1st St. N. from 3rd Ave. to 8th Ave. N.

In 2021, we resurfaced the remaining streets:

  • 2nd Ave. N. from Washington Ave. to 1st St. N.
  • 1st St. N. from Hennepin Ave. to 3rd Ave. N.

We replaced some concrete curbs first, followed by asphalt milling and paving.
