Railway Avenue will be closed to through traffic from 4th Street NE to 27th Street NE starting Aug. 2. Through traffic on Railway Avenue will be detoured south to Burdick Expressway, while local traffic will utilize 6th Avenue NE to access residential neighborhoods north of Railway Avenue.
The work on Railway Avenue is part of the Phase 5 of the Mouse River Enhanced Flood Protection Project. Phase 5 includes earthen levees, a dry stormwater pond, floodwalls, a city greenway feature, and a stormwater pump station.
When completed, this project will relocate Railway Avenue to the north in a process similar to what took place on 4th Avenue NW between Broadway and 3rd Street NE.
