Hwy 65 construction continues


ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists will experience delays and detours at Hwy 65/Central Avenue and East Hennepin Avenue in Minneapolis as the intersection of the two roadways closes at 10 p.m. Friday, June 15.

The closure is needed for crews to work on concrete rehabilitation as part of the Hwy 65 resurfacing project. The intersection will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, June 18.


The Hwy 65 resurfacing project is located in Hennepin and Anoka counties between Washington Avenue in Minneapolis and 53rd Avenue NE in Fridley. Work includes resurfacing Hwy 65 to preserve the lifespan of the roadway and create a smoother ride for motorists, repairing and replacing drainage structures, and updating accessibility for pedestrians. Bicycle facilities were also coordinated with the city of Minneapolis and are included in some locations through the city. The project is scheduled to be completed by late August.
