Pedestrian Bridge Closed Until Winter

submitted by

A dump truck traveling on Interstate 94 last month struck the pedestrian bridge that goes over I-94 near Augsburg. State officials hope to reopen the pedestrian bridge by early winter. As alternatives, pedestrians can take 20th and 25th avenues south and bicyclists are urged to take the Riverside Avenue Bridge. The truck also hit the 25th Avenue and Riverside Avenue bridges and the west side sidewalk on 25th will remain closed until that bridge is repaired, which is expected to be done by late fall. State officials should be implementing some traffic control changes soon that will allow pedestrians on the west side of the bridge.
