Thousands of commuters will have to bypass the corner of Nicollet Avenue and 35th Street starting on Monday, when the city will close down the intersection to motor vehicles.
The area will be under construction for underground storm sewer connection work and paving through about July 23, the city announced today.
The closure will affect motorists using the 35th/36th Street exit off Interstate 35W. Vehicles coming from that exit, the Lakes and Uptown make up many of the 10,000 on average that pass through the intersection daily on 35th Street. Another 8,000 pass through on Nicollet.
The roadwork is part of a project to reconstruct Nicollet – this year, the street is being redone from Lake Street to 36th Street. The rest of Nicollet will stay open to traffic, and access to businesses will be maintained, the city said.
