Traffic Impacts for Grand Ave. S.

For most of the project’s duration, the crews will maintain two-way traffic on Grand Avenue S. and on the crossing street with a lane shift. On blocks where the crews are working, parking will be restricted on both sides of the road, and one sidewalk will remain open at a time.


The exception will be one full closure on Grand Avenue S. just north of 48th Street W. Detour signs will lead through traffic to 47th Street W., Pleasant Avenue S. and 48th Street W. Within the closure, one sidewalk will remain open at a time. The crews will work with residents on driveway access.


Details for traffic impacts on 40th Street W. will be posted closer to the project’s start date.
