The underground parking garage at the Hennepin County Government Center in downtown Minneapolis will be closed for seven weeks starting Monday for a construction project.

Crews will be repairing the garage’s concrete floors and walls, resealing the floors and repainting lines, according to the county.

The work is expected to be finished by Nov. 19.

County officials recommend that, for the duration, drivers park in the Jerry Haaf Memorial Ramp, with entrances on S. 3rd Street and 5th Avenue S.; the Government Plaza ramp, with entrances on S. 5th Street, S. 6th Street and 5th Avenue S.; and the Armory ramp, with an entrance on 5th Avenue S.

Metro Transit Blue and Green Line trains stop at the Government Plaza Station. Several buses also run near the Government Center.

The Government Center garage, which has an entrance on 3rd Avenue S., is used by many people doing business with the county or the district court.
