Hennepin County repaving and striping work begins soon
On Friday, July 28, Hennepin County expects to begin its paving project on Glenwood Avenue from Highway 55 to Highway 100 as part of its pavement maintenance effort.
In addition to pavement maintenance, Glenwood Avenue will be restriped based on current use and to improve safety. The newly paved and striped Glenwood Avenue will:
- Slightly narrow the lanes by one to two feet to encourage lower speeds and better adherence to the posted speed limit.
- Designate the existing roadway shoulders as on-road bike lanes.
When work begins, it will be completed in stages. First, the existing road is grinded away (milled). Then, new road is paved (overlayed). Finally, new striping and pavement markings will be added.
Also, this work is done under traffic. This means traffic will be narrowed to a single lane, with flaggers guiding road users. You should also expect day-to-day changes in the traffic configurations. As a result of the work, it will take longer to travel through the area. For the safety of our crews, we ask that you obey all posted speed limits and slow down when crews are working.
Due to the nature of this work and the weather, the exact start and finish dates may vary. Weather permitting, milling and paving operations are expected to be completed in roughly a week.
