The Minnesota Department of Transportation and City of Minneapolis have closed the south cantilever sidewalk of the St. Anthony/Northtown Bridge to all bicycle and pedestrian traffic.

During a bridge inspection, MnDOT inspectors found significant deterioration of the bridge’s bracket connection.Pedestrian and bike traffic will be redirected to the north sidewalk until repairs are completed. A timeframe for completion is not yet available, according to  a news release from the Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board.

On the roads at this hour, look out for a stalled vehicle on the ramp from northbound 35W to Hwy. 13.
