Construction in the Minnehaha Avenue area enters its final phase on July 5th and will last through fall.

  • Minnehaha Avenue: Construction activities move north to the section between Lake and 34th streets.  The road will be closed to through traffic, although a lane will remain open for local access to homes and businesses. Expect some temporary closures of intersections as they are reconstructed – note that adjacent intersections will not be closed at the same time.
  • 38th Street: The City of Minneapolis will be closing 38th Street between Hiawatha and Minnehaha avenues for a full reconstruction of the road.  Construction is expected to last three months.

Businesses Open! Minnehaha businesses will be open throughout construction, and local access via street and sidewalk will be maintained. Check out the Experience Minnehaha Facebook page for more information on activities and events throughout the summer and fall.

The City of Minneapolis has posted its preferred layout for 38th Street between Hiawatha to Minnehaha avenues.  The new roadway is proposed to include a variety of treatments to make it more pedestrian and bicyclist friendly, including on-street bike lanes, street lighting, and wide grassy boulevards between the sidewalk and road.

Construction is planned for 2016.  More information is available on the City of Minneapolis’ project website.

The City of Minneapolis is planning a full reconstruction of 38th Street between Minnehaha and Hiawatha avenues in 2016.

This project was identified as a priority in the Minnehaha-Hiawatha Community Works framework document to support multi-modal access and economic vitality in the area.  The current roadway is an important connection to the 38th Street LRT station from the Longfellow neighborhood.  However, the road lacks boulevards, trees, lighting, and bike facilities which support pedestrian and bike access to the station.

The project is in the preliminary design phase.  Minneapolis will be holding an informational meeting to get comments and answer questions on the project:

  • Date: Wednesday, October 8, 2014
  • Time: 5:00 pm
  • Location: Minnehaha Communion Lutheran Church
  • Address: 4101 37th Avenue South

Check the project website for more information.
