Crews unearth riverfront history as part of Water Works project in Minneapolis
Now, an overhaul of the riverfront will recognize the history of both the city’s milling district and its indigenous people. Crews unearth riverfront history as part of Water Works project in Mpls. Posing with golden shovels in front of the recently unearthed mill ruins, city officials Wednesday celebrated the groundbreaking of Water Works, a $20 million redevelopment just west of the Stone Arch Bridge. The long-awaited project will bring new public features to the riverfront, including a two-story pavilion, a plaza and a restaurant serving native dishes.
