A block of First Avenue North closing to traffic for weekends this summer

May 24, 2023

Weekend closures involving a block of First Avenue North begin this Friday and will last through October. These closures are for Warehouse District Live: an enhanced public space for nightlife in downtown Minneapolis Friday and Saturday nights.

From Memorial Day weekend through the end of October, First Avenue North from Fifth Street to Sixth Street will close to motor vehicles beginning at 9 a.m. Fridays. The block will reopen to traffic by 10 a.m. Sundays.

Throughout the summer, Warehouse District Live will have food trucks, seating and portable restrooms. The temporary street closures add space to the entertainment district and help create a welcoming and safe zone that’s more friendly to people on foot.
