American Boulevard Bridge over Normandale Boulevard Eastbound Lane Closure

Bridge Inspection Noted Beam Repair Necessary

Monday, May 18, 2020

Bloomington, MN - The eastbound lane on the American Boulevard bridge over Normandale Boulevard has been closed to traffic. During a bridge inspection for a 2021 bridge preservation project that includes the American Boulevard bridge over Normandale Boulevard, it was noted that a bearing pad beneath one of the beams has moved significantly and needs repairs.

City staff worked with the MnDOT bridge office to close the eastbound lane to minimize additional movement. The lane over the beam will continue to be closed until the repair is made, which is expected to be complete by mid-June.
