City hosting open house for 4th Street Reconstruction Project

The City of Minneapolis is holding an open house Monday, Feb. 13, 4-6 p.m., at the Minneapolis Central Library’s Doty Room to discuss the 4th Street Reconstruction Project.

City staff is currently in the preliminary stages of planning and design for the reconstruction of 4th Street between 2nd Avenue North and 4th Avenue South. The street will be reconstructed from building front to building front in order to improve the condition of the infrastructure for pedestrians, bicycles, transit and vehicles; maintain a bikeway facility; and provide transit services on the corridor. Other improvements on 4th Street include sidewalk, crossing and streetscaping improvements to enhance pedestrian safety and walkability.

The City of Minneapolis will hold an open house to discuss the project background, design process, schedule and next steps; as well as offer an opportunity for those who live, work and travel in the area to provide design input and feedback. The meeting, in Central Library’s Doty Room, 300 Nicollet Mall, will include a short presentation at 4:30 p.m.

All area residents, employees, businesses, property managers and building owners are invited to visit the open house to learn more about the project and provide comments and input. Project staff will present information on existing conditions, issues and opportunities in the corridor, and will be available to answer questions.

The presentation material will be available for review on the project website after the open house.
