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 – the first to be constructed in the city of Saint Paul.
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.
All road construction will take place in 2023. Construction was originally scheduled for 2022 but has been delayed until 2023.
Detours or temporary lane shifts will take place in 2023.
The final design includes a mini-roundabout at the Elway Street and Montreal Avenue intersection. Learn more about mini-roundabouts, their benefits and how they function in this short video.
