Hennepin-Lyndale reconstruction

The project will reconstruct portions of Hennepin and Lyndale Aves including concrete paving, grading, curb and gutter, pedestrian ramps, striping, lighting and storm sewer.

Project status




The Hennepin/Lyndale Avenue corridor provides an important north-south linkage for automobiles and transit service between the Minneapolis Central Business District (CBD) and the Uptown area at Hennepin Avenue and Lake Street, one of the city’s most dense housing and entertainment districts.  This project is on sections of Hennepin Ave and Lyndale Ave between Franklin Ave and Dunwoody Boulevard.  These streets were originally constructed more than 50 years ago and are in need of replacement.
