23rd Ave S Closure

23rd Ave S Closure Map

Current Status:

Work is currently being performed on the west half of the 23rd Avenue S & 42nd Street intersection. To safely accommodate this work, 23rd Avenue S is closed to through traffic between 43rd Street and 42nd Street (business access is available via 45th Street S) and traffic along 42nd Street between 24th Avenue & I-94 will be reduced to one lane in each direction with reduced speeds. This closure and lane reduction is expected to last 3-4 weeks, weather permitting.

Project Overview:

The planned work for this project includes the new construction of paved roadways, sidewalks, and incidentals on 23rd Avenue South from 42nd Street to 38th Street and on 41st Street South from 23rd Avenue to 24th Avenue. In addition, new traffic signals and concrete pavement will be installed at the 23rd Avenue & 42nd Street intersection.


  • Upon project start, traffic along 42nd Street South between 24th Avenue & approx. 22nd Avenue will be reduced to one lane in each direction with reduced speeds.
  • The lane closure, which is scheduled to last approximately 3-4 weeks, is needed in order to allow the Contractor to safely perform the project's intersection improvements at 23rd Avenue & 42nd Street.

This project will be funded through a combination of Special Assessment and General Infrastructure funds.


The purpose of this project is to install the infrastructure required for any future development planned for the southwest quadrant of the I-29 & I-94 interchange. The project also allows for the connection to existing infrastructure, as well as intersection improvements at 23rd Avenue South and 42nd Street.
