Thomas and Sons is paving the intersection of 35th and Nicollet. The intent is to get one layer of asphalt down today along with a concrete bus stop pad and the Super America driveway (weather permitting). The intersection of 35th and Nicollet should be re-opening on Monday, July 23rd, weather permitting. When the intersection is reopened, there will be stop signs in place until the permanent traffic signal is completed. Thomas and Sons is scheduled to begin removals between 35th St and 32nd St next Tuesday. This will result in Nicollet Ave being closed between 35th St and 32nd St. Local access will be maintained, more information will be shared on this as it’s available. They will minimize the parking restrictions as much as possible outside of the construction zone. All businesses will be open.
