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 
Underground Utility work continues along the corridor. The deep Sanitary Sewer replacement work continues in the Phase 1 area (12th to 7th). The Telecommunication and Fiber upgrade work is continuing to progress in the Phase 2 area (5th to Washington).
What's Coming Up
Over the next couple weeks the Sanitary Sewer work will be expanding the limits of the work area up to 7th Street. While digging and replacing the sewer across the 8th Street Intersection, access across 8th Street will be closed. Access to East bound 8th Street will be from the South via North bound Hennepin Ave.
Water replacement work will begin about the week of June 16th at 10th Street and progress south toward 12th Street over the next couple months.
Telecommunication work will continue on the north end of the project between 5th and Washington.
