The statue is now back on 7th Street and Nicollet Mall, next to where the actress tossed her tam in the opening credits of her TV series, which ran on CBS from 1970 to 1977. It had been on display at the Minneapolis Visitor Information building two block north.

The city says this is the final week of construction Nicollet Mall. Crews will be removing barricades, sweeping the street and sidewalks, and putting out furniture this week.

The project should be complete by Thursday.
