Sabo bridge closes for routine maintenance Aug. 6-7

The Sabo bike and pedestrian bridge over Hiawatha Avenue in south Minneapolis will close for routine maintenance over a two-day period next week. During the closure, bicyclists and pedestrians should follow all posted detours.

The bridge will close the morning of Tuesday, Aug. 6. Crews plan to reopen it the afternoon of Wednesday, Aug. 7 once all work is completed. Motor vehicle traffic on Hiawatha Avenue will not be affected by the bridge’s closure.

The 215 foot-long Sabo bridge opened in November of 2007. It’s part of the 5.7-mile Midtown Greenway, which connects the Chain of Lakes with the Mississippi River in south Minneapolis.
