The City of Minneapolis is reconstructing 34th Avenue S between E. Minnehaha Parkway and E. 58th Street. The 1.37 mile project is scheduled to occur over the course of the 2019-2020 construction seasons and consists of improvements to the roadway, sidewalk and utilities. During the majority of construction, local access to homes and businesses will be maintained.
The 34th Avenue S reconstruction project began early in 2019, with final clean (repair of defects, final tree plantings, etc.) in 2020. The project timeline was shifted to limit the overlap with other projects in the area and reduce the total amount of construction time.
The project includes complete removal and replacement of the pavement surface, curb and gutter, storm drains, driveway approaches, some sidewalk, and new trees and sod. Once the removals and underground utility work is complete, the new asphalt pavement can be placed.
For more information and questions, please contact the City of Minneapolis Public Works Staff: Menbere Wodajo at Menbere.Wodajo@minneapolismn.
Our construction activities are likely to cause you some inconvenience, but we are hopeful that you will be patient and understanding as the work progresses. For our part, we will do our best to keep these inconveniences at a minimum.
To install new curb and gutter, driveways, and sidewalks we will need to excavate within the City right of way. Please note that the City right of way extends beyond the back of the existing sidewalks. After we complete this work we will remove our construction debris and place new topsoil and sod where it was disturbed. We plan to place sod in the fall of 2019. Any private lawn sprinkler systems, decorative carriage walks, special flowers, bushes or other decorative lawn items in the City right of way are the responsibility of the property owner. If you have concerns or questions regarding your specific property, contact Menbere.
