All Minneapolis parkways that have recently been closed will reopen for vehicles by Aug. 5.
East Bde Maka Ska Parkway is scheduled to reopen to motor vehicle traffic on July 30.
The parkway surface is scheduled to receive a chip seal maintenance project that will close the parkway to all users on July 29. This schedule may change if there is bad weather.
On Monday, Aug. 3, workers will begin removing barriers and other traffic control in place at Cedar Lake, Lake Harriet, West Bde Maka Ska and West River Parkways.
All parkways will be open to motor vehicle traffic by Wednesday, Aug. 5.
The parkways were initially closed off to motor vehicle traffic in late March to allow more space for trail users to follow social distancing and limit the spread of COVID-19.
Other guidelines park users are asked to follow to limit the spread of COVID-19 while using parks and trails:
