The Lowry Avenue Bridge is an important transportation corridor and neighborhood connection in Minneapolis. Hennepin County started the design process for bridge replacement in 2007. The bridge was closed in 2008 due to known structural issues and demolished in June 2009.

Phase I of the replacement project - the bridge over the Mississippi River - is underway.

See Construction News for more information and photographs of Phase I construction.

On April 27th, the Hennepin County Board of Commissioners authorized funding for Phase II of the replacement project. Phase II involves construction over the Canadian Pacific Railroad and its roadway approaches. The schedule for Phase II is being finalized. Phase II construction will be concurrent with Phase I and is tentatively scheduled to start in early 2011.

The entire Lowry Avenue Bridge Replacement Project - including Phase I and Phase II, from Marshall St. NE to 2nd St. N – is scheduled for completion in Summer 2012.
