Penn Avenue is now open
Major construction activities are complete
Penn Avenue (County Road 2) is now open to traffic. Crews have completed the activities needed to reopen the road to through traffic.
You can now enjoy a safer and more accessible traveling experience on Penn Avenue—and not just when driving.
Features include narrower roadway lane widths and new curb extensions, concrete medians, sidewalks and pedestrian ramps.
Narrowed lane widths between Plymouth and 14th avenues to help lower vehicle speeds.
Concrete curb extensions or "bump-outs" at the 14th Street intersections to reduce crosswalk distance and improve access for people walking and rolling.
Concrete medians at both ends of the Plymouth Avenue intersection to improve traffic flow.
New sidewalks and pedestrian ramps and accessible signals that meet Americans with Disabilities Act standards.
Final construction activities in July mean crews still on site
We have a little more work to finish up the project in July, including minor roadway work, installing signs and cleaning up the area.
Penn Avenue will remain open while crews complete the final activities but anticipate occasional impacts and delays when traveling the area. If you see crews working on or near the road, please slow down and use caution.
Plymouth Avenue reconstruction continues
The City of Minneapolis' Plymouth Avenue reconstruction project continues between Xerxes and Penn avenues. This segment of Plymouth Avenue will remain closed to traffic until the project is complete this fall.
