Park Avenue to close at Portland Avenue starting Tuesday, July 27
Starting at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, July 27, county crews will close Park Avenue at Portland Avenue in Minneapolis.
This closure is necessary to replace concrete pavement as part of the Portland Avenue bicycle and pedestrian link project.
We anticipate the work will be complete by Thursday morning, July 29, barring any delays.
Access and impacts
Park Avenue will be accessible using 61st Street. Portland Avenue will remain open.
Anticipate additional closures later this year
We have additional closures planned on Portland Avenue later this year, two weekend closures of the intersection of Portland Avenue and 60th Street, along with a three-week closure of the Highway 62 (Crosstown) ramps. Otherwise, Portland Avenue will remain open to traffic during the duration of the project.
We will inform people of the closures ahead of time with email updates, the project website and signage on Portland Avenue.
