MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Minneapolis is making plans for a major transformation of Nicollet Mall.

The mall will be completely reconstructed for the 12 blocks between Washington Avenue and Grant Street.

A design competition will be held to make the mall more “people friendly” for things such as sidewalk dining, parades, and the farmers market.

The estimated cost is $30 to $40 million.

Funding will come from the state and downtown property owners.

The project should be done by 2016.
