Cedar Lake Road bridge replacement
LocationCedar Lake Road bridge from Morgan Ave. S. to north terminus of bridge Bryn Mawr Near-North
In 2026, the City will replace the Cedar Lake Road bridge over the BNSF railroad in the Bryn–Mawr neighborhood.
The bridge over the BNSF railroad is a seven span timber beam bridge that was built in 1941. The bridge is 142 feet long and 51 feet wide. The bridge has a sufficiency rating of ‘fair’ and thus requires a full replacement.
This project proposes to replace the Cedar Lake Road Bridge (MSA route 406) which crosses the BNSF railroad tracks. This bridge replacement will include transportation infrastructure for vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists. The project will follow the guidance outlined in the Transportation Action Plan and Street Design Guide.
