1 Camden Bridge
River bridges that will be “out” (the Lowry
Avenue Bridge has already been demol-
ished). Northeast and North Side peo-
ple will be asked to go as far south as
Plymouth Avenue or as far north as
Interstate 694 if they want to cross the
Mississippi River during construction.
Traffic engineers say they are aware
that crossing the river at Broadway would
be a slightly shorter detour, but say also
that the Plymouth Avenue Bridge is much
better able to handle the extra traffic than
is the Broadway Bridge.
Bicyclists will be asked to detour to the
north and cross at the Interstate 694 bridge.
The construction will include new ex-
pansion joints, new lights, a new deck, a
new drainage system, and new approach
panels, sidewalks, crash railings, and
The bridge will also be repainted,
Yuzna said, retaining the blue color the
bridge has now. The repainting work is
scheduled for 2011, and the bridge will
not have to be closed for that work.
Yuzna said workers will also have to
rework the bridge’s drainage system.
Now, much of the water from rain storms
goes directly into the river. The new sys-
tem, he said, will “capture it into a storm
water pipe...and run it off the bridge and
into the land.”
On the west end of the bridge, south of
the bridge and east of the trail, he said,
is a natural low point. Now, he said, it’s
“all overgrown,” but it will be converted
into a settling pond. “A lot of the water
runs there already,” he said.
On the east end, he said, “there isn’t an
opportunity to do that open-air” sediment
settling, so they plan to create an under-
ground treatment area for storm water.
The bridge’s current pin-and-hanger
support system, which has some parts
that are fracture-critical, will be replaced
with a bearing system, Yuzna said.
He said city officials considered trying
to keep the bridge open during the work,
but concluded that the disruption of clos-
ing the bridge couldn’t be avoided. “T rying
to do it under traffic,” he said, “would still
require a significant amount of closing,”
and the work would go slower. “We felt it
was more disruptive than just closing it.”
First Ward City Council Member Kevin
Reich, who represents residents on the
east end of the bridge, said, “It will take
some time for people to get used to get-
ting across the river without this bridge,
but as new traffic patterns settle in, City
traffic engineers will be looking for ways
to help ease traffic flow as much as pos-
sible. Getting through this construction
will require some patience, but the ben-
efits will be well worth the disruption.”
Fourth Ward City Council Member
Barbara Johnson, who represents residents
on the west end of the bridge, said, “We
know having this bridge closed will be an in-
convenience for many people. “But a com-
plete closure means we’ll get through this
inconvenience much faster, and it creates
a safer working environment. Minneapolis
residents have been wonderful in adapting
to new routes during major construction
we’ve had recently, including the I-35W
Bridge and the Crosstown projects.”
Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak said,
“This project is a great example of how the
Recovery Act is making a difference in our
city and across the country. It will create
about 90 construction jobs this year, and
the work they do will benefit us for decades.
The life of the bridge will be extended at
least 35 years because of this work.”
