Latest on Hiawatha projects

Both the Hiawatha intersection improvement project and the landscape restoration project are essentially complete.  All 350 trees have been installed in the corridor. Construction on the intersections — including the bump-outs, medians, and crosswalks — has been completed.  The bike lanes and symbols along 32nd have been installed.

Remaining items include:

  • The City of Minneapolis will be installing the pedestrian push buttons at 42nd and 46th streets by the end of September.  The southside crosswalk of 46th Street will remain closed until the push buttons and walk signals can be installed.
  • Our project landscapers will continue to water and maintain the trees along Hiawatha until the summer of 2016.  Trees are covered by a 2-year warranty.  Any trees that did not survive the initial transplant are planned for replacement in September 2014.
