46th Street Bridge across I-35W reopens July 31

Traffic will once again move across Interstate 35W at 46th Street with the reopening of the 46th Street Bridge on July 31. One of the major thoroughfares connecting neighborhoods in south and southwest Minneapolis, the 46th Street Bridge has been closed since April 2008. During that time, it was demolished and rebuilt in order to accommodate the expansion of I-35W as part of the I-35W/Highway 62 Crosstown reconstruction project.

In addition to the bridge, the northbound I-35W exit ramp to 46th Street also will reopen on July 31. The 46th Street entrance ramp to northbound I-35W is currently open. The exit and entrance ramps along southbound I-35W remain closed and will reopen this fall.
