2018 Portland Avenue Projects
During the 2018 construction season, several agencies will be performing work on Portland Avenue between American Boulevard East and Old Shakopee Road in Bloomington. The construction will be staged, and will begin with the CenterPoint Energy Beltline Project. During the CenterPoint Energy Beltline work, the City of Bloomington will also be performing sanitary sewer improvements (approximately one day of construction). After CenterPoint Energy and the City of Bloomington have completed their work in the area, Hennepin County will begin a mill and overlay on the street from American Boulevard East to Old Shakopee Road. Hennepin County will also be making safety improvements in partnership with the City of Bloomington. All work is anticipated to be complete by the end of summer 2018.
