Bridge over Midtown Greenway closing to motor vehicle traffic

December 27, 2021

Beginning Monday, Dec. 27, the 10th Avenue bridge over the Midtown Greenway is closing indefinitely to motor vehicle traffic.

A load limit was placed on the bridge following a structural analysis. Since the load limit took effect, the City has observed many vehicles crossing the bridge that exceeded that limit. To prevent the bridge from degrading further, no motor vehicles will be allowed to cross the bridge until the City and Hennepin County can find a long-term solution to the problem.

The bridge and the greenway will remain open to bicycles and pedestrians.
