A dumpster hauler struck the 22nd Avenue pedestrian bridge near Augsburg University on Monday. It also hit the 25th Avenue and Riverside Avenue bridges.
Our crews responded immediately and determined the pedestrian bridge needs to close. In addition, the southbound right lane of the 25th Avenue bridge also is closed until Aug. 12. The sidewalk and bike lane on the southbound side are also closed. The sidewalk on the northbound side is open. The Riverside Avenue bridge will remain open.
We have crews out Tuesday afternoon working on the bridges.
We realize this is an inconvenience for those who use these bridges, but we need to make sure they are safe before anyone uses them.
For those who rely on the 22nd Avenue pedestrian bridge to cross I-94, we recommend you use the 25th Avenue or 20th Avenue bridges while we determine how long the bridge will be closed. We recommend Riverside Avenue bridge for bicyclists.
