Uptown Construction Update

Uptown Construction

Road construction is a reality we have to live with the majority of the year in Minnesota. And now it has made its way to the most iconic intersection in the Twin Cities: Hennepin and Lake.

The road and sewer construction is being done in preparation for new bike lanes that will run alongside Hennepin Avenue this fall. But for those traveling by car, parking will still be simple with several entrances and exits at the Calhoun Square ramp!

Here’s a quick overview of what’s to come:

  • Pavement removal between 35th & 36th, and 33rd & 34th (complete)

  • Sewer main installation

  • Water work between 33rd and 36th

  • Traffic signal removals at 34th, and 31st & Hennepin

Not to worry; while the roads get an upgrade, your favorite businesses, shops and restaurants are ready to serve you! To make your journey easier, we’ve also compiled our recommendations for visiting and parking around the Uptown area, available here.
