Revitalizing Minnesota’s Main Street

Block-by-block, the Nicollet Project is transforming the signature street of Downtown Minneapolis.

Enhanced greening combined with vibrant, pedestrian-friendly features will provide a richer experience for Downtown Minneapolis’ millions of workers, residents and visitors.

Led by the City of Minneapolis and the Minneapolis Downtown Council, the project is a key part of both the Downtown Council’s Intersections: The Downtown 2025 Plan and The Minneapolis Big Build.

This Week

  • Work is fully underway throughout the corridor
  • Work will continue on:
    • signals and light poles
    • above ground work on features
  • Concrete sidewalk work will continue


Nicollet Mall is always going to be the core and heartbeat of downtown, so this project will help reinforce that.”

—Downtown Council President Steve Cramer
