North Broadway Project

Construction will begin April 2021 and continue through September 2022.

Travel impacts from April 19 through May 10*:

  • Silver Lake Drive NE will be closed at the North Broadway intersection. This closure is to allow for the construction of a bypass that will be used for the future project detour.
  • North Broadway traffic will be restricted to one lane northbound and one lane southbound between 11 Street North and the Zumbro River bridge.
  • Sidewalks and Recreational Trails:
    • Access along and across North Broadway Avenue will be maintained at all times.
    • The Silver Lake Trail on the south side of the lake will be closed near 13 Street/North Broadway Avenue. A signed pedestrian detour for trail users, including cyclists, will provide a path for crossing North Broadway.

Travel impacts beginning on May 10*:

    • The following changes will be occurring on North Broadway Avenue beginning on Monday, May 10:

      • North Broadway Avenue will be closed to through traffic between Civic Center Drive and Silver Lake Drive NE until November 2021.
        • Through traffic will detour via Silver Lake Drive NE.
        • Local traffic and business access for North Broadway will utilize side streets (5 Street North to 13 1/2 Street North) and the mid-block alleys east and west of North Broadway.
      • North Broadway Avenue will be completely closed to all vehicle traffic from 11 Street to 13 Street until late July 2021.
      • Sidewalks and Recreational Trails:
        • Access along and across North Broadway Avenue will be maintained at all times.
        • The Silver Lake Trail on the south side of the lake will re-open via a temporary pedestrian and bicycle path. This temporary route, for pedestrians and cyclists alike, will use 12 Street NE and North Broadway Avenue to connect trail users to the Cascade Creek Trail and the Silver Lake Trail on the north side of the lake. This temporary route will be in place for the first phases of the project and will be modified as the work locations shift throughout the 2021 construction season.
