RE: Riverside Ave Reconstruction Project

Dear Project Stakeholder,

The City of Minneapolis Public Works is preparing to reconstruct one mile of roadway in the 2011/2012 construction seasons. The reconstruction project will consist of full removal and replacement of base, pavement, curb, gutter, sidewalks, lighting, traffic signals, stormwater management technologies, and a new striping plan. The reconstruction will impact local parking, bike lanes, and pedestrian paths as well as the drive lane configuration.

I would like to invite you to a public meeting to present the preferred project layout and answer any question you may have for the project. Due to the diverse group impacted by this project, we have scheduled two public meeting times. Both meetings will present the same information and will be structured in the same way. Please feel free to attend either meeting. The meetings are scheduled for Tuesday, August 24 th , 2010 at:

10AM:

Augsburg College

2211 Riverside Avenue

Oren Gateway Center – Room 111 Minneapolis, MN 55454

6:30PM:

Seward Towers East Advantage Center

2910 E Franklin Ave

Minneapolis, MN 55406

Please feel free to contact me with questions or to provide comments if you are unable to attend either meeting. I can be reached at (612) 673.3274 or Chris.Engelmann@ci.minneapolis.mn.us. Information regarding the project is also available on the City of Minneapolis website at http://www.ci.minneapolis.mn.us/cip/riverside.
