Next week, 21st Avenue South will be closed to through traffic between South 6th and South 7th streets in order for McGough Construction to pour the floor of the skyway.
The work is expected to begin early Monday, December 19, and continue through the week until late Friday, December 23, but the schedule is dependent on weather. The concrete work requires covering and heating the skyway 24 hours per day until the concrete is poured and cured. McGough Construction coordinated the timing of this work with Augsburg College and the City of Minneapolis, intentionally scheduling it during the holiday break to minimize impact on traffic and parking on campus.
During the closure, appropriate signage will be set up. Vehicular traffic will be unable to drive through the closed area. However, safe sidewalk access on the east side of 21st Avenue will be maintained.
