Minnesota Avenue Rehabilitation Project

New Phase of Improvements to Begin

The Unified Government's Public Works Department will begin another round of major street and sidewalk improvements along the Minnesota Avenue corridor later this year.   

This next phase of improvements is a continuation of the major street rehabilitation project in 2012 at the intersection of 7th and Minnesota. The  project was part of the construction of the Downtown Metro Center. The Downtown improvements will begin on Minnesota Avenue between 7th and 8th and continue west with the same street, sidewalk and landscaping enhancements. Public Works anticipates construction beginning in June of 2015 with completion by the end of December 31, 2015.
