LaSalle Ave. Reconstruction and Paving Project to begin April 20
Due to daily lane closures, and added congestion on 10th St. in accordance with the LaSalle Ave. reconstruction and paving project the University of St. Thomas Department of Public Safety and Parking Services has decided to temporarily move the Minneapolis campus shuttle bus stop from its normal location on Harmon Pl. to a temporary location on 11th St. at the curbside inlet just in front of the south doors in to Schulze Hall.
Signage has been posted in the plaza, and the shuttle bus stop on Harmon Pl. alerting riders to this change.
This temporary move will last the duration of Phase 1 outlined below.
Beginning April 20, 2015 the City of Minneapolis will begin a two phase project that will include the reconstruction and paving of LaSalle. Ave. between 8th St. and 12th St. The project is scheduled to be fully completed in the spring of 2016.
The first phase is set to begin on April 20, and last through June, and will include the reconstruction and paving of LaSalle Ave. between 8th St. and 11th St. This work will include removing the current concrete and asphalt structure of LaSalle Ave. along with curb, sewer and gutter replacement from 8th St. to 11th St. During this time traffic will be limited to “local traffic” only and will include lane closures on the east and west sides of LaSalle Ave. between 8th St. and 11th St., and some lane restrictions at the intersections of 8th St, 9th, 10th and 11th St. as the project progresses.
Phase 2 from 11th St. to 12th St. will begin sometime in June, and last through August. Just like in phase 1 the City of Minneapolis will reconstruct and pave LaSalle Ave. from 11th St. to 12th St. Traffic will be limited to local traffic only as in phase 1, and will include lane closures on the east and west side of LaSalle Ave. along with lane restrictions at the intersections of 11th and 12th St. as the project progresses. Again, this work is scheduled to be completed sometime in August, 2015.
This project will have some impacts on the University of St. Thomas, but should not affect any of the daily activities scheduled to occur during this time. Those commuting to and from the university may see increased traffic, and congestion on 10th St. and 11th St. during this time, and should plan accordingly. This project may also affect the shuttle bus service between the university in St. Paul and Minneapolis, and plans are being proposed to potentially move our shuttle bus stop for the Minneapolis campus at certain times throughout the project from its current location on Harmon Pl. between 10th St. and 11th St., to an alternative location on 11th St. between LaSalle Ave. and Harmon Pl. in front of the Schulze Hall School of Entrepreneurship. University patrons will be kept abreast of changes to the shuttle bus service on the Minneapolis campus.
