Expect delays and temporary closures of Broadway Street Northeast between Marshall Street Northeast (County Road 23) and Lincoln Street in Minneapolis starting October 14th for approximately one week (weather permitting). Due to the nature of this work and the weather, the exact start and finish dates may vary.
The majority of the work will be completed alongside traffic. This means people can continue to use the road. You should expect delays and traffic configuration changes when traveling through the area. Flaggers may also be on site to help guide people driving on Broadway Street Northeast.
This work is done in stages. First, we ground away, or mill, the existing pavement. Then, we pave, or overlay, a new layer of pavement. Finally, we add new striping and pavement markings.
Stay Safe During Construction
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.
