The Basilica Block Party is scheduled for July 10-11, which means visiting to The Basilica may require advance planning as we begin our preparations for the big event.
If you plan to visit The Basilica by car from July 7-10, please park in the Minneapolis Community and Technical College Parking Ramp located at 1420 Hennepin Ave S, Minneapolis. Entrance to the ramp is located off Laurel Ave. The ramp is on the east side of The Basilica. Parking fees are collected via "pay-as-you-enter" auto-cashiers ($5.00 per entry).
This week also marks the beginning of the closures on I-394 between Hwy 100 and I-94 in Minneapolis.
Beginning at 10 p.m. Friday, July 10 construction crews will close the mainline lanes on westbound I-394 between Hwy 100 and I-94 in Minneapolis. All westbound traffic will use the two HOV/Reversible Lanes on I-394.
This section of westbound I-394 will be closed for approximately two weeks.
