Southwest LRT Construction Update: October 8 - 21, 2021

As we move into the fall construction season we are transitioning to a bi-weekly construction update. If there are unscheduled or priority construction activities that fall between these construction updates, we will send a special construction bulletin, and post to the project’s social media accounts.

Closure of Excelsior Boulevard in Hopkins  
 On Monday, October 25, both directions of Excelsior Boulevard will be closed at the Jackson Street and Milwaukee Avenue intersection for approximately 10 days. Jackson Street and Milwaukee Avenue will be restricted to right turns only. Crews will dismantle and remove bridge construction equipment, having completed that portion of the LRT bridge structure. After this work is complete Excelsior Boulevard will reopen to traffic in both directions. See Hopkins detour maps
