Minnehaha Avenue (County Road 48)
The Hennepin County Transportation Department in partnership with the City of Minneapolis, will be reconstructing Minnehaha Avenue from Nawadaha Boulevard to Lake Street. Reconstruction began in April 2015 and will end in late 2016.
Improvements to Minnehaha Avenue will address the deteriorating pavement, utility, and drainage concerns, non-motorized accommodations and storm water quality conditions. The Minnehaha Avenue design will be safer, more livable, and welcoming to all users, while balancing potential impacts to residents and businesses along the corridor.
Crews for the Minnehaha Avenue reconstruction project have completed pavement removal on Minnehaha Avenue between Minnehaha Parkway and 45th Street. Pavement removal between 45th Street and 44th Street will begin Monday, April 27, 2015. Signs indicating upcoming parking restrictions on this block of Minnehaha Avenue have been installed in advance of the work.
Additional reconstruction activities on Minnehaha Avenue between 45th Street and Minnehaha Parkway will be ongoing, along with reconstruction of the Minnehaha Avenue/46th Street intersection. Please note area parking restrictions, which are signed.
Though it may be dirt or gravel, a passable lane will be maintained along Minnehaha Avenue on the blocks under construction for motorists to access local businesses and residences.
