Third Avenue Bridge will be closed Friday – Monday.
The Third Avenue Bridge will be fully closed from 10PM on Friday, May 15 through 5AM on Monday, May 18, so crews can prepare for upcoming bridge work.
Starting Monday, May 18, the Third Avenue Bridge will be reconfigured to include a transit-only center lane down the middle of the bridge to support buses traveling into downtown Minneapolis during the weekday morning commute and out of downtown during the afternoon commute.
There will be a single auto lane in each direction, and pedestrians and bicyclists will share the protected sidewalks on the bridge.
Full closure of the bridge begins next year, from January 2021 through November 2022.
