Downtown Section of West River Parkway to Close Completely Beginning October 14

Via an October 4 announcement from the Minneapolis Park & Rec Board

Section of parkway already closed during weekdays will also close on nights and weekends beginning Oct. 14

West River Parkway will completely close between Fourth Avenue North and the parking lot for the Stone Arch Bridge, just west of Portland Avenue, beginning Monday, Oct. 14, 2019. The closure is expected to last for about a month. The Stone Arch Bridge parking lot will also likely close for a shorter period during this time.

This section of the parkway is already closed during weekdays, but it reopens on nights and weekends. The upcoming full closure is due to work ramping up on Water Works, a new riverfront park project currently under construction.

The adjacent bike/walk trails will remain open during this time. The parkway will reopen periodically for short periods throughout the fall to accommodate previously scheduled special events.

The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board appreciates everyone's patience while Water Works is constructed.
