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 work is typically between 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. the next morning, to minimize disruption to residences and businesses. 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. At this point I do not have a work schedule or map showing the affected areas. I will share additional information as it becomes available to me.
The Water Department will notify properties individually prior to shut-offs. The City will provide at least a 24-hour notice for residential shut-offs and at least a 48-hour notice for business shut-offs.
