Lake Street construction update

Lake Street construction work is scheduled to resume today, March 27.

This year, the focus of the project is between Bryant and Harriet avenues.

Contractors will remove the pavement and part of the sidewalks, replace the gas main and perform grading operations. Pedestrians will continue to have access to businesses throughout the project.

By the end of 2008, Lake Street between Dupont Avenue and the Mississippi River will have a new roadway, sidewalks and streetscape.

Metro Transit buses that normally operate on Lake between Grand and Emerson avenues are rerouted one block south to 31st Street.
