86th Street Bridge now open

MnDOT and their contractors reopened the W. 86th Street Bridge over I-35W on Tuesday, November 14, 2017 to vehicle and pedestrian traffic. The new bridge will provide additional clearance over I-35W, increased sidewalk width and a decorative railing that can be seen from both W. 86th Street and I-35W.  Additional restoration and cleanup work will still need to take place, but will be done while maintaining traffic on the bridge.

The rehabilitation work on the W. 82nd Street Bridge will continue and is expected to be completed in early December.
