Learn more about the 2021 Tanager Bridge reconstruction project
Hennepin County is scheduled to reconstruct the Shoreline Drive Bridge (County Road 15) over Tanager Lake in Orono this year. The bridge is more commonly referred to as the Tanager Bridge.
Starting as soon as late February, we will begin work to replace the Tanager Bridge and realign the bridge approaches on Shoreline Drive. This work will improve safety for people using the bridge and the channel below.
Join our online open house
We anticipate that crews will be onsite through most of 2021, and the project will impact how people travel in the area. Because of this, we are inviting you to join a live online open house for the project.
Wednesday, January 27
Link to the event will be posted here
What will be covered
We expect the presentation to last approximately 30 minutes and cover the following:
- Project timeline
- Improvements the project will provide for people traveling through the area
- How to stay informed
We will also provide additional information about bridge and channel closures, including an anticipated 60-day bridge closure to vehicle traffic at the beginning of the project.
We will have project representatives to answer any questions you might have.
