We're two weeks away from the Final Four being held at U.S. Bank Stadium, and downtown Minneapolis will see street closures starting Monday.
Over 90,000 visitors are expected downtown for the Final Four games and associated events, which will happen Apr. 5-8.
Preparations for the event are now ramping up, meaning a number of full and partial street closures are being rolled out around U.S. Bank Stadium and Nicollet Mall.
It'll likely mean disruption for those driving through downtown over the next two weeks, with the first closures being put in place on Monday, March 25.
Chicago Avenue South will be closed in front of the stadium – between 4th Street and 6th Street, from today until April 12.
The same goes for Norm McGrew Place, which crosses the light rail tracks between 3rd and 4th Streets.
The biggest disruption around U.S. Bank Stadium will start next week, when 4th Street South closes around the stadium, as does Park Avenue South between 4th and 5th Streets, and 5th Street South from 11th Avenue to 6th Street.
Here's a look at the closures around U.S. Bank Stadium.
Meanwhile on Nicollet, which is the venue for a host of Final Four-related activities including a Ferris wheel and free concerts, closures will start next Monday.
Nicollet Mall will close from 8th Street South to 12th Street South between Apr. 1 and 10, while a closure of 10th Street between LaSalle and Marquette will be in place from Apr. 2-9. That's along with on-and-off closures of 11th Street South from Marquette to LaSalle before and over Final Four weekend, Apr. 5-8.
There will also be lane restrictions on 8th, 9th and 12th Streets.
Nicollet Mall will also be closed outside the IDS Center – between 7th and 8th streets – from April 3-9 as it plays host to ESPN College Gameday.
