ABOUT

From 2019 to 2020, the City of Minneapolis reconstructed 8th Street South in downtown Minneapolis between Hennepin Avenue and Chicago Avenue. Work on the project was substantially completed in September 2020.

In addition to repairing deteriorated pavement, the project included improvements that enhanced comfort and safety for pedestrians, transit users, and vehicles including:

  • Wider sidewalks, enhanced crosswalks with accessible curb ramps and count-down timers, landscaping, and lighting​

  • New planting beds and street trees at some locations throughout the corridor, along with new bike racks

  • Enhanced transit amenities including new Metro Transit Rapid Bus with better shelters and larger waiting areas at three locations
