Downtown Improvement Underway

Work on the Minden Downtown Revitalization sidewalk project started June 10. The southbound driving lane and parking area of Colorado Avenue from 4th Street to 5th Street is closed to vehicle and pedestrian traffic, but front door access to businesses is still open.
Customers can access the sidewalk directly in front of businesses from 4th Street or 5th Street. Businesses will remain open through this first stage of construction. 
As the project progresses, concrete in front of each business will be removed and replaced with ADA compliant concrete ramps and steps with railings. During this time, main access to businesses will be closed one business at a time starting at the Senior Center and moving north. Customer access to the west side of the square will fluctuate from 4th Street or 5th Street.
