ABOUT

In 2019, the City of Minneapolis reconstructed 8th Street between Hennepin Avenue and Park Avenue. The purpose of the project was to:

  • Improve the condition of the infrastructure for pedestrians, transit, and vehicles​

  • Improve pedestrian safety and the pedestrian realm by providing cross walks with pedestrian curb ramps, durable crosswalk markings, wider sidewalks, count-down timers, landscaping, and lighting​

  • Improve transit operations through the corridor by allowing for the implementation of enhanced transit amenities at select locations, including larger waiting areas for transit stops

During the 2019 construction season, crews completed:

  • Roadway, sidewalk and storm sewer construction

  • Planter box and permanent signage installation

  • Traffic signal and crosswalk enhancement

ROADWAY CONSTRUCTION WORK RESUMES SPRING 2020

Roadway reconstruction work on 8th Street resumed spring 2020 and includes:

  • Replacement of the roadway, sidewalk, and storm sewer facilities between Park Avenue and Chicago Avenue, including both intersections.

  • Joint sealing and replacement of some damaged concrete roadway and sidewalk panels between Hennepin Avenue and Portland Avenue.

  • Final restoration work including landscaping, bike rack installation and permanent markings between Hennepin Avenue and Chicago Avenue.

DETOUR ROUTE MAPS

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING CONSTRUCTION

  • There will be an increase in traffic congestion, noise, vibration and dust in work areas.

  • Anticipate temporary vehicle lane closures and parking restrictions through mid-Summer 2020. Lane restrictions and parking restrictions will vary block-by-block depending on construction activity.

  • There will be temporary sidewalk closures throughout 8th Street. Pedestrian detours will be facilitated as needed. Expect greater pedestrian impacts at the intersection where work is occurring. 

  • Bus service on 8th Street will be rerouted east of 5th Avenue and on Chicago Avenue to adjacent streets during roadway reconstruction work between Park Avenue and Chicago Avenue.
