The project includes reconstructing 8th Street, from Hennepin Avenue to Chicago Avenue and will involve the removal and replacement of pavement, curb, sidewalk, driveway entrances, traffic signals, street lighting, stormwater drainage systems, and other utilities. There will be widened sidewalks, enhanced transit service/amenities, improved crosswalks, and streetscape/landscaping improvements.
The project is currently underway. Utility relocations were completed in Spring and Summer 2018 and heavy roadway construction will begin in Spring of 2019. Construction is anticipated to last through 2020.
