Same cones, new places: a look at Rochester construction changes this week

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – Keeping up with a changing downtown construction scene is no easy task. This week, there are a number of updates worth knowing.

First, the ongoing sanitary storm sewer project along 2nd Street SE enters phase four.
The intersection of 2nd Street and 1st Avenue SE will close to traffic.
3rd Avenue will shrink to just one lane each direction along the bridge heading towards the Government Center.

Elsewhere, the reconstruction project of the Wells Fargo building will force the shutdown of First Avenue from Peace Plaza to Center Street. Crews are adding scaffolding Monday and Tuesday.

And just a few blocks north, the Hyatt House hotel project will shift traffic to one lane each way thru the end of construction.
