Upcoming closure of the 48th Street and Grand intersection begins Monday (9/20). Pavement removals will occur on Monday prior to utility work in the intersection. The full duration of the closure is expected to last roughly 4 weeks. During this time, pedestrian access will be maintained, but for the safety of the workers, there will be no vehicle access through the intersection for a majority of the duration.
Just as a reminder, all of Grand Ave between 38th and 48th is still considered under construction, which means there are uneven surfaces between pavement match points, discontinuities and unfinished grades. Please keep this in mind when traversing whenever you are within the project limits.
Watch the KFNA Board Meeting for an overview by Minneapolis City Clerk Casey Carl of how the City Charter is structured and a description of the three charter amendments on the ballot this year. Followed by Q&A, then entire presentation takes about 1 hour and can be found on KFNA’s YouTube channel.
If you are still confused about the amendments and want to learn more, visit here, and register to attend (in person or virtually!) the Saturday October 16th Charter Amendment Community Forum, organized by a coalition of SW neighborhood associations acting as a unified Election Education Team. At this forum, advocacy groups will be speaking to each side of each proposed amendment. This forum will be moderated by the League of Women Voters. Questions taken in advance ONLY, and can also be submitted online at this site.

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.
Rain days forced some shuffling around of the construction schedule, which means the 46th intersection and blocks north of 40th Street (excluding the 40th and 39th intersections) are scheduled for asphalt paving this Thursday (9/2). After hours work is also planned this afternoon at 46th to accelerate the sidewalk replacement at the intersection.
Last week, boulevard areas prepped for plantings were sprayed with a turquoise-colored hydromulch. This was applied to prevent erosion until scheduled seeding, planting, or sodding takes place later in the fall. It does not contain any seed mix and does not require any watering or maintenance by property owners.
