Tanager Bridge reconstruction

County Road 15 in Orono

Hennepin County is preparing preliminary plans for the replacement of the Shoreline Drive Bridge (County Road 15) over Tanager Lake, frequently referred to as Tanager Bridge.

Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in 2020. Until replacement, the bridge remains load restricted for commercial truck drivers. Law enforcement is enforcing these restrictions.
