Construction & Detours
ANTICIPATED CONSTRUCTION SCHEDULE & DETOURS
Construction began in June 2015. The bridge crossing and adjacent roadways (California Street and Main Street) will need to be closed during all or portions of demolition and construction. The exact dates of closure for the bridge, California Street, and Main Street are identified in a preliminary schedule (below). All dates and details are subject to change. Updates on road closures and detours will be posted on this website throughout the demolition and construction process. Project partners thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation and City of Minneapolis have closed the south cantilever sidewalk of the St. Anthony/Northtown Bridge to all bicycle and pedestrian traffic. During a bridge inspection, MnDOT inspectors found significant deterioration of the bridge’s bracket connection. Pedestrian and bike traffic will be redirected to the north sidewalk until repairs are completed. A timeframe for completion is not yet available.
