Hennepin County is in the final stages of a road maintenance project that has likely impacted how you arrive and leave DeLaSalle. County officials have started the last phase of their project to preserve the road surface on 1st Avenue and East Hennepin Avenue. During this final stage, please note the following impacts:

Drivers will be able to turn right in and out of DeLaSalle Drive to access the school.

At least one lane of traffic on both 1st Avenue and East Hennepin Avenue will be be kept open.

The Metro Transit bus stop in front of DeLaSalle will be closed during the construction. Students who ride Metro Transit buses to DeLaSalle on routes 4, 6, 11, 61, and 141 may exit at the stop on 1st Avenue at 2nd Street NE or at the stop on 1st Avenue at 1st Street S (by the Federal Reserve Bank) and walk across the bridge to DeLaSalle.

The project is scheduled to conclude by Friday, September 21, though county officials caution that the project could be extended due to weather delays.
