Repaving and restriping work nearing completion
Hennepin County and the City of Bloomington are finishing up work to improve the nearly 2.5-mile segment of Nicollet Avenue (County Road 52) between American Boulevard and Old Shakopee Road/West 98th Street (County Road 1).
The key improvements of this project include repaving and restriping the road with permanent road markings to accommodate travel lanes, public transit and on-street bike lanes.
Since mid-May, crews repaved and restriped the majority of the new corridor. There are some construction tasks remaining to complete the project, including:
- Painting the remainder of road markings
- Installing permanent signage
The remaining work is expected to be completed in the coming weeks.
While this work continues, people using the road may experience some delays.
We thank you for your continued patience and cooperation as we wrap up the project.
For your safety and the safety of our crews, we ask that you continue to exercise caution and slow down where crews are working.
