Road Work Updates

65th Street Reconstruction Kick-off Open House – May 26th!


May 23, 2022 77th Street Underpass Construction Update!

  • Posts for the noise wall along the east side of Cedar Avenue are being installed over the course of the next few weeks.
  • This week, the contractor’s storm/sewer crews will be focusing on the installation and connections of manholes and catch basins along 77th St, as well as the south side of Washington Park.
  • The grading of the roadway for 77th St is expected to be completed by the end of this week, with the completion of the grading for Richfield Parkway to follow soon after.
  • Over the next 3 weeks crews will work on the stems for the bridge which will support one of the southbound lanes for TH 77. These abutment stems help support the bridge and retain the soil behind the abutment.

 


77TH STREET UNDERPASS

The 77th Street underpass will connect 77th Street east and west of Trunk Highway (TH) 77 (Cedar Avenue) to eliminate a gap in the minor reliever network. The project will connect Bloomington and Longfellow Avenues and address regional traffic issues on the I-494 corridor through Richfield and Bloomington.

  • New traffic flow improvements, including roundabouts at Nicollet and Lyndale avenues
  • New pavement providing a smoother ride when traveling in a vehicle
  • New sidewalks and trails with a boulevard buffer between the road
  • New paths to use when bicycling
  • New turn lanes in key areas

Thank you!

From the entire project team, we would like to thank all local businesses, residents and 66th Street users for your patience and cooperation during the entire 66th Street project and for this final construction season!
