Construction Closures

West River Parkway – Summer-Fall 2019

West River Parkway is currently open between Fourth Avenue North and the Stone Arch Bridge parking lot.  That section of parkway was closed earlier during summer 2019 and will close again in fall 2019.

Cedar Lake Parkway – 8/16/2019

Cedar Lake Parkway is scheduled to close between W Franklin Avenue and W 21st Street from 9 am to 3 pm on Friday, August 16, 2019.

The parkway closure is necessary for crane work related to a residential construction project. The adjacent bicycle and pedestrian trails will be partially closed.

Please stay away from areas where work is being performed and follow the posted detour route, which follows Ewing Avenue S between Franklin Avenue and 22nd Street.

Theodore Wirth Parkway – 8/19/2019-8/26/2019

Weather permitting, Theodore Wirth Parkway will close between Plymouth Avenue and Golden Valley Road beginning Monday, Aug. 19, 2019. The closure will begin at 7 am and the parkway will reopen at 6 pm each day until work is finished, which is expected to take one week.

The adjacent bicycle and pedestrian trails will remain open and access to the Theodore Wirth Golf Course parking lot will be maintained.

The closure is necessary for the City of Minneapolis to complete repairs on seven stormwater catch basins and one stormwater manhole located on the parkway. Motorists will be detoured east to Xerxes Avenue. Please follow the posted detour.
