Hennepin Avenue Downtown Reconstruction Project

Hennepin Avenue Downtown Reconstruction Project

Hennepin Ave. reconstruction project, led by City of Minneapolis Public Works, will be reconstructed between 12th Street and Washington Avenue beginning Spring 2019. The project will reconstruct the pavement from building face to building face, including improvements to public and private utility infrastructure, and improved infrastructure for pedestrians, bicycles, transit, and vehicles.
Latest Project News
Utility work continues throughout the corridor from 12th to Washington.  Progress is being made on the Sanitary Sewer Replacement from 9th to 7th.  The Private Utility Companies are continuing their upgrades from 5th to Washington.
What's Coming Up
The Sewer work will be progressing across 8th Street in the coming days and proceeding north toward 7th.  This will close East Bound traffic crossing at 8th Street. 8th Street is open east of Hennepin and access from North Bound Hennepin.

The Private Utility Companies will be completing their new fiber work north of 5th Street.

The City Water Dept. has begun the watermain replacement work at 10th Street this week and will head south over the next few weeks.
