Lexington Parkway Reconstruction (Phase Two)
Lexington Parkway will be extended from West 7th Street to Shepard Road in Saint Paul in 2023. The design utilizes Elway Street as part of the extension and includes a mini-roundabout at the Montreal Avenue intersection.
This is the second phase of work to redesign and reconstruct Lexington Parkway near West 7th Street, improving safety and traffic flow while creating a clearer connection to the Mississippi River.
As part of the project, Elway Street will be reconstructed with one traffic lane in each direction. New pedestrian and bicycle facilities and new lighting will be added to improve safety for all users, and utilities located under the road will be improved.

Asphalt pavement is ongoing on Lexington Parkway.
Concrete pavement and sidewalk are completed on Shepard Road.
The road is anticipated to open by Thanksgiving Day.
