From 10th Ward City Council Member Meg Tuthill
Uptown residents are advised to take alternate routes during the following construction detours.

Lagoon and Hennepin

Beginning April 29, a utility contractor will be doing work for the Walker Library construction in the southbound lanes of Hennepin Avenue between the Uptown Transit Station and Lagoon Avenue. Two southbound traffic lanes and one northbound traffic lane will be maintained on Hennepin while the utility work is being done. On the east side of Hennepin, meters will be hooded and the taxi zone will be temporarily removed. The west sidewalk along Hennepin between the Uptown Transit Station and Lagoon will also be closed for a few days during the week. The southbound lanes are expected to be closed until the end of the week.

South end of Lake Calhoun

On April 25, sewer work began on westbound Lake St W between Thomas Avenue and E. Calhoun Parkway. The work will cause each of the three lanes along this road to be closed, one at a time. Two lanes of traffic will remain open at all times. Work has begun in the southern most lane on the westbound side. If possible, all lanes will be open for morning rush hour. However, once a lane is closed to line the sewer pipe, the lane cannot be opened until the lining work is completed, usually about 24 hours.
