Get ready for Minnehaha reconstruction

By robb, January 15, 2015 11:12 am

Construction on Minnehaha Avenue is scheduled to begin this spring.  Because of the need for extensive underground utility work, the county plans to close the road in four-block segments; however, people will still have access to residential and business driveways.

Estimated construction and road closure dates:

  • 46th – 42nd streets:  April to July 2015
  • 42nd – 38th streets:  July to November 2015
  • 38th – 34th streets:  April to July 2016
  • 34th – Lake streets:  July to November 2016

What can you look forward to on the new Minnehaha Avenue?

  • Turn lanes added at key nodes to ease traffic flow
  • Curb extensions to reduce pedestrian crossing distances and improve visibility
  • Enhanced bike lanes to give cyclists a more comfortable ride
  • More pedestrian and street-level lighting to enhance the feeling of safety
  • On-street parking for businesses, residents, and visitors
  • Trees and stormwater improvements to enhance the environment and aesthetics
  • Street furnishings and colored concrete treatment at key nodes to create a pedestrian-friendly sense of place
