Dale Street Reconstruction
Dale Street was reconstructed between Iglehart and University avenues in Saint Paul in 2020 and 2021. The $14.7 million project included reconstructing and widening the bridge over Interstate 94. Based upon extensive input from the neighborhood, the new concept:
- Improves safety for all.
- Includes reconfigured through lanes and left turn lanes to accommodate traffic volumes and allow for better traffic flow.
- Widens sidewalks to provide a safer passage for pedestrians and bicyclists in all seasons.
- Features public art that reflects and celebrates the Rondo community.
Pedestrian improvements included enhanced crossings, wider sidewalks and a gentler slope approaching I-94 from University Avenue.
Project partners included the City of Saint Paul and the Minnesota Department of Transportation. The project was identified as a priority in the City of Saint Paul’s Comprehensive Plan.
Major construction began in March 2020 and was completed in August 2021.
Work in 2021 focused on reconstructing Dale Street between Iglehart and Concordia avenues, and Dale Street fully reopened to traffic in August 2021.
