Road work on Xerxes will stretch through the summer

The current reconstruction of the Xerxes Avenue Bridge is slated to be complete in July. Crews are removing and replacing the bridge decks and rails and upgrading pedestrian crossings.

A Centerpoint Energy contractor is also replacing pipe and natural gas service lines along Xerxes from 54th Street to Highway 62.

Starting in August, Hennepin County will do a road mill and overlay project on Xerxes between 66th Street and Minnehaha Creek.

Hennepin County continues to work on a permanent solution related to the temporary bump-outs and lane configurations on Xerxes near Highway 62.
