Starting this spring, crews will begin repairing the Stone Arch Bridge spanning the Mississippi River on the edge of downtown Minneapolis. Work includes repointing mortar on the entire bridge, repairing and replacing stone, and other repairs as needed. Stone repair and mortar replacement will halt deterioration and improve the condition of the bridge.
During construction, pedestrians and bicyclists will not be able to cross the full length of the bridge through fall 2025. Crews will close half of the bridge at a time during construction, allowing people to walk or bike to the middle of the bridge and turn around at the closure. Construction is anticipated to be complete by spring 2026.
