  • I-35W overnight closures March 20-22

As many of you know, because we’ve heard from you, the pavement on I-35W has taken a beating this winter causing large potholes and rutting through the project area. Despite temperatures still being low, we’re working closely with an asphalt plant that makes hot mix for patching potholes and they have agreed to open for us this week so we’re able to make longer lasting fixes on the road.

I-35W daytime lane closures March 18-19

To be able to get out and patch the potholes, we need to take I-35W down to a single lane today and tomorrow:

On Mon, March 18 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., southbound I-35W is down to a single lane between Washington Ave. and 42nd St.

 On Tue, March 19 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., northbound I-35W will be single-lane between 42nd St. and Washington Ave.

If crews are able to finish patching on southbound I-35W before 2 p.m. on Mon, March 18, they will move to NB I-35W to begin patching. This will cause NB I-35W to be single-lane today and tomorrow. All NB I-35W lanes will be open by 3 p.m.

I-94 overnight lane closures March 18

We are also going to patch the potholes on eastbound I-94 tonight, March 18. From 7-10 p.m., EB I-94 will be reduced to two lanes between I-394 and Washington Ave. Then, beginning at 10 p.m., EB I-94 will be reduced to a single-lane between I-394 and Washington Ave. All lanes will be open by 5 a.m. Tue, March 19.

Midtown Greenway daytime closures March 18-19

Greenway is closed from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. today, March 18 and tomorrow, March 19, between Nicollet Ave. and 5th Ave. S. The detours for the closure include:

  • Westbound bicyclists and pedestrians: Use northbound 5th Ave. S., WB 26th St., and SB Nicollet Ave. to the Midtown Greenway entrance.

  • Eastbound bicyclists and pedestrians: Use NB Nicollet Ave., EB 28th St., NB 1st Ave., eastbound 26th St and SB 5th Ave. S.

The Midtown Greenway is also tentatively scheduled to have more daytime closures March 20 and March 21.  

Overnight I-35W closures scheduled March 20-22 

We’ve been delayed setting the bridge beams on the 28th St. bridge because of the weather, but we hope to do the work this week, To do this work, we need some overnight closures of I-35W. From 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., I-35W will be closed in both directions between Hwy 62 and I-94 on Wed, March 20, Thu, March 21 and Fri, March 22. The detour route uses I-94, I-394, Hwy 100 and Hwy 62.

I-35W is tentatively scheduled to close overnight again March 27 and March 28. More details to follow.

North Loop

The North Loop name once referred to the trolley line that served the area. Today it defines the shape of the neighborhood and its location adjacent to the Warehouse District and the rest of downtown Minneapolis. The neighborhood is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. For most of its history, the North Loop was an industrial area, and home to a large railroad yard and numerous warehouses and factories. The Warehouse District fell into disrepair in the 1960s and 70s, but reemerged in the 1980s as the epicenter of the Minneapolis art scene. In recent years, revitalization of the North Loop has made it the fastest growing neighborhood in Minneapolis and “the” Twin Cities neighborhood in which to live, work, eat, shop and play! 

 

Target Center

Target Center is a multi-purpose arena located in downtown MinneapolisMinnesota. Target Center hosts major family shows, concerts, sporting events, graduations and private events. Target Corporation is the original and current naming rights partner of the arena.

History of the Warehouse District


historicwd.jpg
 

It all started...

As an area of commercial growth during the early development of Minneapolis, the Warehouse Historic District features a remarkably intact concentration of commercial buildings designed by the city’s leading architects and engineers. Located in the north part of downtown Minneapolis the North Loop area served as the city’s warehouse and wholesaling district during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, expanding when Minneapolis became a major distribution and jobbing center for the upper Midwest.

With the panic of 1857 and the subsequent Depression, eastern retailers were no longer able to sell on credit to remote outposts. The people of Minnesota and other western territories needed a place to buy their goods; this led to the development of Minneapolis as a jobbing center. With the completion of the railroad in 1867, Minneapolis became a hub of wholesale distribution. Wholesalers found a natural location to concentrate warehouses just northwest of the central business district where land values were relatively low and rail lines were nearby. Beginning as a distributor of dry goods and groceries and then of farming implements, Minneapolis soon dominated the wholesale market. From 1880 to 1907, the wholesale trade originating from the Warehouse District grew from $24 million to $280 million. In 1919, it reached the $1 billion mark. By 1920, approximately 300 warehouse businesses were located in Minneapolis.

Prominent architects of the day were called upon to create the commercial spaces needed for these endeavors. These buildings exhibit the various tastes and trends popular at the time and represent a wide range of commercial architectural styles, from Italianate and Queen Anne to Richardsonian Romanesque and Classical Revival. As the business district moved and adjusted to changing needs of customers, so did its architectural styles. The Italianate style of the Washington Avenue stores and warehouses became the Renaissance revival style of the grand warehouses of First Avenue, which evolved into the Queen Anne Commercial of the early 1900s. This physical representation of the progression of tastes and styles is one the many significant contributions of the Warehouse District.
