Central Ave Closure – Official City Announcement

Important Central Avenue Closure Information

Beginning Tuesday, April 1, at 9 a.m. utility work will commence on Central Avenue between 14th and 18th Avenues NE. This work will necessitate closing lanes on Central Avenue for at least 2 weeks. One north-bound and one south-bound lane will remain open.

This utility work is being done in preparation for the full closure of Central between 14th And 18th Avenues, which is scheduled to begin May 19, immediately following Art-A-Whirl, and continue through Fall 2014. The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MN DOT) is closing Central Avenue to begin constructing a new Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) Bridge. During construction, access to businesses and residences on Central Avenue will remain open; however, Central Avenue under and near the BNSF Bridge will be closed to traffic. Motorists will be detoured around the closure using NE Lowry, University and Broadway Avenues.
