The 2018 PMP will reconstruct 1.3 miles of street in the area north of Earl St, east of Mendelssohn Ave N, south of 23rd Ave, and west of Decatur Ave and the General Mills James Ford Bell Research Center.

Douglas Drive

The reconstruction of Douglas Drive (County Rd 102), a joint two-year project between the City of Golden Valley and Hennepin County, is nearing completion. Led by Hennepin County, work began in July 2016 in phases, starting at Medicine Lake Rd and continuing to Hwy 55. Douglas Dr is open to traffic in late 2017. Crews will return in 2018 to finish various short-term projects, like pouring sidewalks in certain areas, landscaping, paving between Frontage Rd and Hwy 55, and grinding in permanent striping.
