Hennepin County in coordination with the City of Minneapolis, is preparing for the reconstruction of Washington Avenue South (County Road 152) between Hennepin Avenue and 5th Avenue South. The project is in the early stages of the project development process and construction is anticipated in 2014.
Hennepin Avenue to 5th Avenue South will remain the limits for the proposed reconstruction project. The concept plans will be used to generate a preliminary layout on which the detailed design for the project will be based.
5th Avenue South to I-35W is not identified as a reconstruction project at this time. However, the concept plans will provide guidance as future projects are identified and as funding becomes available.
Project information will be made available on this website and at public meetings.
