Beginning Monday, June 20, drivers will face "major delays" for the next few weeks on East Hennepin Avenue between Southeast Main and 8th streets in the Nicollet Island/East Bank neighborhood, according to a Hennepin County engineer.

Fixing the pavement on the county-owned road will reduce traffic from three lanes to one and temporarily eliminate all onstreet parking, said Paul Backer of the county's transportation division.

Backer said the work is expected to take approximately three weeks, ending around July 8.
