10th Ave SE Bridge Rehab & Water Main Project

10th Ave S 

Project Status


CIP Status Stage 3: Preconstruction

Project Details

Project Type:
The project proposes to rehabilitate a bridge over the Mississippi River and West River Parkway. It will preserve the major capital investment by repairing deteriorated concrete areas on the spandrel columns, floor beams, and arches.

If the structure is allowed to continue to deteriorate, rehabilitation will no longer be cost effective. Total structure replacement of this bridge is expensive.

In conjunction with the bridge rehabilitation work, the City also plans to replace a large-diameter water main which is currently suspended from the bridge structure. Installed in 1949, the water main has suffered from many of the same deteriorating conditions as the bridge. The main will be removed from beneath the bridge and a replacement main will be installed underneath the Mississippi River by digging two large, deep shafts on either side of the river and using a specialized tunneling machine to install the new water main beneath the river.

Project Limits:
The project is located east of downtown Minneapolis on 10th Ave SE over the Mississippi River from approximately W River Parkway to 2nd St SE.

Bridge Construction Start Date:
Fall 2019-2020

Bridge Construction Start Date:
April 2019 - March 2020

Duration of Construction:
Two construction seasons

Traffic Impact:
Bridge will be closed.
Detour plan for vehicular, bikes, and pedestrians is under development.
