Throwback Thursday: cutting the ribbon on a new Broadway Ave.

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

After 18 months and $5.4 million, a newly reconstructed stretch of Broadway in downtown Rochester between 9th St. South and 4th St. North was officially reopened on the morning of November 18, 1988.

The event was marked with a ribbon cutting ceremony outside the Chamber of Commerce, pictured here in this snapshot from the History Center of Olmsted County archives.

Despite the frigid temperatures that day, about 150 people attended, including then Mayor Chuck Hazama, pictured to the far left on crutches, as well as City Council and city staff members, and officials from the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
