MCTC Parking Ramp Directions
• The MCTC ramp is located at 1420 Hennepin Ave S, Minneapolis, Minnesota (north side of Hennepin Ave).
• The MCTC ramp utilizes a "pay-as-you-enter" mechanical system that requires each customer to pay prior to entering the parking ramp($5.00 per entry).

Ramp entrances (from Downtown Minneapolis):
• Ramp entrances are right turn only off of Hennepin Ave, and right or left turn from Laurel Ave, (1 block north of Hennepin between 15th and 16th St on the north side of the building.) It is illegal to make a left hand turn into the MCTC parking ramp from Hennepin Ave, and the Minneapolis Police department actively enforces this restriction.

Handicapped Accessibility

There are two areas reserved for handicapped parking-one is located on the west side of the church (17th St). Enter the ground level doors of the church (handicapped accessible), and take the elevator up to the sanctuary. Another handicapped parking area is located on the east side of the church (16th St). The church may be entered via the ramp on the east side of the building, but please note that these original brass church doors are not equipped for handicapped access. Please display your permit.  Violators may be towed.
