Washington Avenue Reconstruction Update

Brief closure of 5th Avenue South later this week

Beginning Friday, June 16, the southeastern corner of the intersection at 5th Avenue South and Washington Avenue South will be closed. This will allow crews to perform critical underground utility work in the intersection.

If you are travelling on 5th Avenue in this area during this closure:

· Westbound traffic will have one lane available to turn onto Washington Avenue
· All eastbound traffic will be detoured to South 4th Street and Park Avenue

Weather permitting, this closure is anticipated to last until the end of the day on Monday, June 19.

Project and traffic updates

Work is wrapping up on the 3rd Avenue intersection. All lanes of traffic are anticipated to reopen today.

Also, crews continue to make progress pouring curbs and gutters on Washington Avenue between 2nd and 3rd avenues. 

As a reminder:

· Eastbound Washington Avenue is open between Hennepin and 2nd avenues. All through traffic must use the detour of 2nd Avenue, 4th Street South and Park Avenue.
· The lane restrictions at 4th Avenue South continue.
