Lake Street bridge maintenance

County Road 3 over the Mississippi River in Minneapolis

Hennepin County and Ramsey County are making improvements to the Lake Street Bridge over the Mississippi River right now.

The bridge, built in 1989, is a significant crossing of the Mississippi River and an important landmark. Work on the bridge will assure a safe, usable, and attractive bridge for years to come.

Improvements include replacing the expansion joints, repairing the limestone veneer, repairing the plaza areas and sealing the concrete deck. It is anticipated that one half of the bridge will be worked on at a time in order to minimize traffic impacts.
