Work continues for a third year to replace deteriorated concrete sidewalk segments in neighborhood parks. As in previous years, the locations listed below were prioritized based on the “fair” or “poor” condition of their sidewalks, determined as part of a 2017 assessment of pavement conditions in all Minneapolis neighborhood parks.
As with the work completed earlier, this project focuses on concrete sidewalks only (not asphalt paths or sport courts), in part because it is contracted in coordination with similar work on properties owned by the City of Minneapolis. Work is expected to begin this month and continue as long as weather allows.
Locations slated for 2019 sidewalk replacements
North Minneapolis: Bethune and Willard parks, Humboldt and Newton triangles.
Northeast/Southeast: Hi-View, Marshall Terrace, Waite and Xcel Field parks
South Minneapolis: Bossen Field, Central Gym and McRae parks
Southwest Minneapolis: Bryant Square, Mueller and Washburn Fair Oaks parks and Waveland Triangle
This project is funded by the 20-Year Neighborhood Park Plan (NPP20), a long-term initiative that reverses years of under-funding in neighborhood parks.
