Update: I-35W overnight closures September 6-9
To do this safely, we will need four overnight closures:
Motorists will be detoured to use Hwy 62, Hwy 100 and I-394 for both overnight closures.
Once final striping is completed on I-35W, some ramps may begin to reopen to traffic. All ramps and lanes are expected to be open by the end of the day Fri, Sept. 10.
Minneapolis residents are invited to share their experiences at virtual listening sessions about the City’s response to the protests in May and June 2020, part of an after-action review conducted by a consultant under contract with the City. During this session, you’ll hear from the team conducting the review and get an overview of the project’s objectives. Facilitators will split attendees into breakout groups to hear the perspectives of everyone in attendance. Listening sessions will be held at the following times:
National Night Out (NNO) is an event that takes place every year on the first Tuesday in August. Minneapolis leads the nation for NNO participation, and Kingfield often leads the City for participation. According to the City website, holding an NNO gathering gives you and your neighbors:
With its roots in “community policing”, NNO was conceived of as a way to also connect police to the community. In Kingfield, this has looked like individual blocks inviting police officers to stop by their NNO event if the block wanted to invite them. KFNA has independently supported NNO events (without connection to MPD) over the two decades. The value that this event brings to neighbors cannot be overlooked.
We believe NNO events in Kingfield create the sort of community-based safety we know is cultivated by neighbors knowing each other, knowing each others’ kids and dogs, and being connected on our blocks and throughout our neighborhood. In this spirit, National Night Out is a community-building and safety strategy that KFNA supports regardless of its historical involvement with the police.
So in the spirit of connecting with neighbors, and in the spirit of creating a community where all neighbors feel welcomed and safe, KFNA will be visiting all block parties that registered their block party for NNO at the City of Minneapolis (we access a list of these directly from the city) AS WELL AS all blocks that want to instead register as a site for the National Night Out for Safety and Liberation AND provide you block party address directly to us by emailing .
