Greenway bridges

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, the City of Minneapolis, state historical offices and a variety of other agencies are working together to maintain service and safety of the Greenway bridges, while honoring the historic character of the corridor.

10th Avenue Bridge closed to vehicle traffic

On December 27, 2021, the City of Minneapolis and Hennepin County Regional Railroad Authority closed the 10th Avenue Bridge over the Midtown Greenway to vehicle traffic. However, people walking, rolling, and biking can continue to use the bridge.

The bridge closure resulted from continued violations of posted vehicle weight restrictions and safety concerns due to current bridge conditions. The bridge will remain closed until a long-term solution to allow vehicles to travel through safely is found.
