Project Update

Project bids received in early 2020 came in higher than expected, and the planned construction start in 2020 was postponed. The City Council authorized the project for bidding in January 2021, and bids were received on February 23, 2021.  The City Council will consider awarding the project at the regularly scheduled March 15, 2021 meeting.

A virtual business and property owner meeting was held on 3/9/21 to provide information on the proposed project, an update on the bids that were received on 2/23/21, information on schedule, staging, and access, and to take input. View the informational session video recording.

If you have questions, would like additional information, or would like to give your input on the project, please contact Dillon Dombrovski, City Engineer, at 507-328-2421, or

Project Summary

The City of Rochester is in the final stages of the planning and design for the reconstruction of Broadway Avenue (from Civic Center Drive to 13th Street North). This project is intended to begin the transformation of the Broadway Avenue corridor into a significant multi-modal gateway to downtown Rochester and the Destination Medical Center (DMC) Development District. The Broadway Avenue Corridor Study, completed in 2015, set the stage for future improvements that will occur.
