Project Update

November 2, 2017

As work for the season wraps up, replacements have been completed for critically damaged sidewalk sections around the perimeters of the neighborhood park locations listed below.

In addition, inventory and condition ratings are complete for all neighborhood park sidewalks, paths and parking lots. This allows development of concrete sidewalk replacement plans for 2018 to cover 50 to 60 neighborhood parks, including perimeter and interior sidewalks and other concrete paved areas. Park locations and other details will follow in 2018.

Perimeter sidewalk replacements complete at the following locations:

North Minneapolis: Bethune Park, Folwell Park, Willard Park

Northeast/southeast Minneapolis: Logan Park, Waite Park

South Minneapolis: East Phillips Park

Southwest Minneapolis: Washburn Fair Oaks Park

Project: Sidewalk repairs, replacement at 15 parks
Announced: June 16, 2017
Time frame: August through October, 2017

This project includes replacement of critically damaged sections of sidewalks around the perimeter of a park property and, if possible, minor repairs to interior sidewalks.
