There will be a meeting Dec. 4 at Open Book, 1011 Washington Ave. S., from 5–7 p.m. to get briefed on the upcoming reconstruction of Washington Avenue.

Hennepin County is working with the city of Minneapolis on a project to reconstruct Washington between Hennepin and 5th Avenue South. Construction is expected to start in the middle of 2014.

At the Dec. 4 meeting, people will have a chance to learn about existing uses and challenges facing the stretch of Washington and comment on new ideas for the street. Another meeting is planned for early 2013 to go over design features.

The goal is to make the street safer and more beautiful for pedestrians, bikers and motorists.
