MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A number of streets in downtown Minneapolis are getting repaved, and some of the roadway rehabilitations will include bicycle lanes.

According to the City of Minneapolis, crews started by working on 3rd Street South from Hennepin Avenue to 11th Avenue South. The work will continue along 4th through 7th Avenues.

Many of the streets being repaved were used as detours in the aftermath of the Interstate 35W bridge collapse in 2007, which led to extra wear and tear.

The city says more than 50 blocks will have a smooth new surface by October, which should extend the roadways’ life by another decade.

Most of the construction is expected to take place during non-peak traffic hours, but the city warned of forthcoming road closures.
