In preparation of this summer’s Nicollet Avenue road construction project, the City of Minneapolis Water Department will soon begin to replace some of the gate valves on the water mains between 36th and 40thStreets. This water shut off is typically between 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. the next morning, to minimize disruption to residences and businesses. The excavation can result in temporary parking lane and travel lane closures. Water service will be typically be disrupted once, however some areas may require additional disruptions depending on the number of valves that will be replaced.
Minneapolis Water has given me the following information (as always, schedule is weather permitting):
- Friday March 1st Water will set thaw boxes on E. 39th St @ Nicollet Av. S. (east and west sides of the intersection)
- Monday March 4th and Tuesday March 5th excavate and set shields.
- Tuesday March 5th @ 11pm to 6:00am Wed. water shutoff on E. 39th St. from 1st Av. to Blaisdell. and on Nicollet Av. from 38th to 40th and Van Nest Av. 39th to 40th (see attached maps for more detail)
