With spring finals wrapping up at the University of Minnesota, a major campus thoroughfare is closing next week for Central Corridor light-rail construction, Minneapolis officials said.
The closure of Washington Avenue starts Monday just after midnight and involves two sections: from Pleasant Street to Walnut Street and from Walnut Street to Oak Street.
The Washington Avenue Bridge over the Mississippi River will stay open through most of the construction, the city said, although some evening or weekend closures may be needed.

Located right at the edge of the downtown business district, Sexton Lofts is marketed to younger, downtown-oriented adults who are poised to inevitably make their mark on Minneapolis: “cool, cosmopolitan, connected, centered.” This conversion of an early twentieth-century structure is touted as offering “genuine and innovative” living spaces to complement the genuine and innovative lifestyles of its residents—who can keep track of one another from their balconies, which orient around a common court yard. The location is especially convenient for county workers, close to both HCMC and Government Center. The skyway system is only a block away, the Hiawatha LRT, two blocks. Although the units are modest in floor area, ceilings of up to 16 feet contribute to a dramatic feel, just the right atmosphere for future movers-and-shakers.
