Minor construction work to unearth and preserve historic riverfront remnants may begin soon

Excavation and masonry rehabilitation may begin soon at the future site of Water Works. Construction bids are still under review, but if everything is approved work will begin in July or August 2018. Limited construction is expected to continue through the fall and winter, with more extensive new construction planned for 2019.

First Street South may experience some minor impacts as work progresses on Water Works, but access to adjacent residential properties will be maintained and no closures are anticipated. Construction is not anticipated to impact West River Parkway or the adjacent trail.

Water Works is a park development project overlooking St. Anthony Falls and the Stone Arch Bridge. One of the signature projects in the RiverFirst vision, Water Works will bring visitor services and recreational and cultural amenities to one of Minnesota’s most highly-visited destinations.
