Grand Avenue to close between Finn and Cretin next week St. Thomas Newsroom October 20, 2004 Grand Avenue to close between Finn and Cretin next weekGrand Avenue will be closed between Finn Street and Cretin Avenue from Monday, Oct. 25, through Monday, Nov. 1, because of activity related to construction of the Child Development Center and Student Residence at St. Thomas. Construction crews from Ryan Companies need to install and connect storm sewer and sanitary sewer lines for the new building on the northwest corner of Grand and Finn. Metro Transit buses and other traffic will be routed to Summit Avenue during this period. “Local” traffic will be allowed to drive on Grand between Finn and Cretin; that means only residents who live on that one-block stretch. Permit parking will be allowed on the block during construction. For more information, contact John Hershey, neighborhood liaison, (651) 962-6123.
