46th Street (County Road 46) is reduced to one lane in each direction between the west end of the Ford Parkway bridge and 46th Avenue South.
Godfrey Parkway is closed to all motorized through traffic.
The detour for Godfrey Parkway uses Minnehaha Avenue, 44th Street and West River Parkway.
The closure is necessary to replace the 46th Street bridge over the parkway (sometimes referred to as the Godfrey Bridge). The closure will continue through fall 2017. There may be temporary re-openings, including for special events.
Bicyclists and pedestrians
Starting Tuesday, March 21, the trail under 46th Street East (County Road 46) will close temporarily for work on the Godfrey Bridge.
Pedestrians and bicyclists will be detoured onto nearby Minnehaha Regional Park trails. Signs will guide users along the detour.
While the trail is expected to reopen on March 24, bridge removal at the underpass will continue. There will be fence panels to guide trail users through the site. Users can expect intermittent closures, lasting no more than 15 minutes, through early April. Detour trails will be available to users until the project is completed.
Please note, the timing of trail reopening is subject to change based on weather conditions.
There will be times when the traffic configurations on 46th Street and Godfrey Parkway need to change. Sign up for updates to stay informed of these changes.
