East 7th Street remains one lane in each direction with no left turns onto Payne Avenue
Eastbound detours at Layafette Road and Minnehaha Avenue

The schedule of construction work is weather-dependent

Phase I:       Reconstruct the south half of East 7th Street.
                      East 7th Street will be reduced to one lane in each direction with no left turns to Payne Avenue.

Phase II:      Reconstruct the north half of East 7th Street and all of Payne Avenue.
                      When work starts on Phase II, Payne Avenue will be closed to traffic.

Work completed this past week

  • Curb and concrete base pavement were placed on the south side of East 7th Street.
  • Note:  Xcel Energy Gas did work north of East 7th Street which was unrelated to the project.

  • Sidewalk will be placed on the south side of East 7th Street.  Pedestrian access will be maintained on the north side.
  • Bituminous pavement will be placed on the south side of East 7th Street.
