Washington Avenue has long been a major hub of campus transportation. Over the next 3 years, it will be the site of major construction that in the end will transform this section of the U of M- Twin Cities campus.
During the construction period, there will be a number of closures and changes that affect how visitors come to the campus. Some changes have already begun. As of March 6, vehicle traffic on the Washington Avenue bridge will be restricted to the north side. Two-way traffic will be maintained. The pedestrian level of the bridge will also be restricted to the north side.
The Metropolitan Council has a website with a number of resources describing the plans and construction schedule along with updates on specific locations along the route.
