Portland Avenue repaving tomorrow
Starting at 4 a.m. tomorrow, October 8, crews will repave Portland Avenue (County Road 35) between 60th Street in Minneapolis and 67th Street in Richfield as part of the Portland Avenue bicycle and pedestrian link project.
Barring any delays, we anticipate this work to be complete by Friday evening.
Short-term closure at the 66th Street roundabout
From 4 to 6 a.m. tomorrow, crews will close the Portland Avenue and 66th Street (County Road 53) intersection to allow crews to repave the roundabout. We are paving at this time, when there is less traffic, to improve safety for crews and reduce traffic impacts.
During this brief closure, people will need to use other local routes.
Road will remain open at other locations
At all other locations, crews will keep Portland Avenue open while crews are repaving. People driving should expect minor delays from traffic configuration changes and lane closures.
For your safety and the safety of our crews, we ask that you obey all posted speed limits and slow down where crews are working. Flaggers will be onsite to direct traffic where crews are working. Please allow yourself some extra time to reach destinations in the area.
