While Twin Cities roads are accident and incident free at the moment, here's some news that might make drivers in north Minneapolis happy.

Hennepin County officials are planning a grand opening of the Lowry Avenue Bridge on Oct. 27.The party will run from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

With the Plymouth Avenue Bridge shut down, an east-west route over the Mississippi River is desperately needed.

The Lowry Bridge was closed in 2008, so it's been a long four years without it.
