The City of Minneapolis, MN is repaving Nicollet Ave. from Lake St. (30th) to 40th St. for the first time since 1954. I've been taking photos since they started in May; actually, I started earlier, from the public meetings. I post them on Facebook chronologically. In this video of the intersection of Nicollet Ave. and 31st St., the photos are presented by location and theme, with a few explanatory divergences.

My photo archiving project is not done! This section of the Repaving Project is not done! Look for later videos.

The construction crew has been great. They do good work, and they've tolerated a curious neighbor and answered all his questions. Thanks!
