Nicollet Mall is OPEN!
And Opened Safely!
It was quite an undertaking for Meyer Contracting, at that point, this was our largest project to date! But, Nicollet Mall is OPEN to the public!
Here is what went into the reconstruction of the Mall:
2.25 miles of new storm sewer
Over 20 miles of wire
Common excavation that would fill 4 Olympic swimming pools
Over 1,560 light fixtures
Over 3 miles of concrete curb & gutter
255,000 SF of etched concrete sidewalks
145,000 SF of new concrete roadway
In concrete, this is the equivalent of 7 football fields
All of this in only 12 city blocks AND in under 500 calendar days!
Add to this, Meyer won the MNSHARP Award!
Meaning we completed this entire project with NO Loss Time Injuries!
Awesome job by our Team and all our subcontractors!
