There are 26 historic bridges along the Midtown Greenway originally built between 1912 and 1916. Because of their age and varying conditions, many of these historic bridges will need some form of repair or replacement in the coming years.
Hennepin County is working with a variety of partners, including state historical offices and other agencies, to maintain service and safety of the Greenway bridges, while honoring the historic character of the corridor.
Fremont Avenue Bridge over the Midtown Greenway
The Fremont Avenue Bridge replacement project is the current Greenway Bridges project. Construction includes removing the old structure and pouring a new bridge deck and foundation. Residents who walk, bike, roll, driver or use transit in the area will benefit from the reconstruction.
The project began summer 2019 and is anticipated to be complete in fall 2020.
