Dale Street reconstruction project complete for 2020
The Dale Street reconstruction project is substantially complete for the 2020 construction season. Barring any unforeseeable circumstances, all traffic restrictions within the project area are expected to be removed by the end of the day on Thursday, Nov. 19:
- All I-94 entrance and exit ramps will reopen to traffic.
- All lanes of the new Dale Street bridge will open to traffic.
- Anthony and Concordia avenues will return to being one-way streets, and the intersections will reopen to east-west traffic.
- All pedestrian facilities will reopen.
Construction on the 2020 phases of the project began in mid-March. This year’s work included rebuilding and widening the bridge over I-94 – including widening the sidewalks to improve safety for pedestrians and bicyclists – and reconfiguring lanes to accommodate traffic volumes and allow for better traffic flow.
The new Dale Street bridge and its 16-foot wide pedestrian sidewalks feature public art designed by local and emerging artists that is reflective of the Rondo community, its history and cultural significance. The board of commissioners voted to formally support the art and aesthetics earlier this year. The project was significantly influenced by an extensive multi-year community engagement process.
Work will resume in summer 2021 to finish the final phase of Dale Street reconstruction between Iglehart and Concordia avenues.
