Building Location Details

Minnesota Judicial Center

25 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
St. Paul , MN 55155
(651) 297-7650

Public Entrance to Temporarily Close

The public entrance to the Minnesota Judicial Center will be temporarily closed starting May 5, 2014.    

The Department of Administration Real Estate and Construction Services will begin the process of replacing the pavers at the Martin Luther King (MLK) Jr. Blvd. entrance to the Judicial Center on May 5, 2014 (weather permitting). The work will be completed in two phases over a period of approximately two months.   

Phase 1: This phase of the project is scheduled to begin on May 5 and last through May 23. During this phase, all persons will be redirected to two alternate entrances. The first entrance is located on the Cedar Street side of the building on the first floor and will serve as the primary entrance into the building. The entrance on Cedar Street cannot be used by individuals in need of an ADA-accessible entrance; therefore, a second entrance located on the second floor plaza will be opened. 

Phase 2: This phase is scheduled to begin on May 26 and last through the end of June. During Phase 2, the MLK entrance will be partially re-opened. It is a partial re-opening because the ADA accessible portion of the sidewalk will be closed for repair. Persons in need of an ADA-accessible entrance will continue to be directed to the second floor plaza entrance. The Cedar Street entrance will no longer be used as the primary access point to the building during this phase.
