Key information


Seeking funding in 2023


Nicollet Avenue bridge over the Minnehaha Creek.


Project overview

The Nicollet Ave. bridge over Minnehaha Creek is also known as Bridge No. 90591. The bridge was built in 1923 and repaired in 1973. Currently, the bridge is 63 feet wide and 816 feet long. 

The bridge has:

  • Bike lanes on both sides
  • Sidewalks
  • Two lanes for vehicles

The bridge is eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. Repairing it will allow use for many years to come.

We're still deciding on construction funding and timing.

What the repairs will include

We'll replace and fix all structural elements of the bridge and roadway. The repaired bridge will be 60’-4” wide.

The bridge will have:

  • 6-foot wide protected bike lanes
  • 8-foot wide pedestrian sidewalks
  • Two 11-foot traffic lanes
