Minnesota Avenue, 57th Street to St. Andrews Drive

Project Update 11/26/2021 

  • Minnesota Avenue from 57th Street to St Andrews Drive is now fully open to traffic.
  • This segment of Minnesota Avenue had one of the highest crash rates in the city. Most of them were rear-end crashes attributed to a high number of turning vehicles. A key improvement made as a part of the project is a center turn lane, which will separate turning traffic from through traffic. This addition will result in major safety improvements on Minnesota Avenue.
  • Additionally, the project involved removal of the existing street surfacing, replacing the existing water main, reconstruction of the storm sewer, installation of new street lights and traffic signals, new concrete pavement, sidewalk, and 8’ wide side path. Private utility companies also upgraded their facilities during the project.
  • Due to delays in manufacturing and shipping, the traffic signal has not been completed at Ralph Rogers Road. Based on our communication with the manufacturer, it is anticipated that the remaining components will arrive and will be installed before the end of the year. Periodic lane closures will continue into the spring of 2022 for grass restoration and tree planting.
