St. Anthony Parkway Bridge reopens to bike and pedestrian traffic

The St. Anthony Parkway Bridge in northeast Minneapolis, which closed to all traffic last week, has now reopened to bicycles and pedestrians. Crews have redirected bicycle and pedestrian traffic down the center of the bridge where motor vehicles once traveled.

Last week’s closure came after vehicles exceeding a three-ton weight limit were spotted using the bridge. The closure still affects all motor vehicles.

The 89-year-old truss bridge carried an average of approximately 4,200 vehicles a day over two dozen tracks of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe rail yard. The City is now in the process of replacing the bridge, with construction expected to begin in 2015 and reopen to traffic in late 2016.
