DIXON – The south side of First Street, between Hennepin and Galena avenues, will reopen today, Commissioner Jeff Kuhn said. 

The north side of the street, he said, could reopen "within a few days." The city doesn't want to open that side of the street until the tree gates have arrived and have been installed, Kuhn said. 

The portion of First Street has been closed for about 2 months for the downtown streetscape project and Kuhn said work on that block is "so close to being done."
