The 10th Avenue Bridge is a critical transportation element of the Minneapolis riverfront area and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Originally built in 1929, it has admirably carried traffic over the Mississippi River for nearly 90 years. However, leaking expansion joints and leaking drainage elements have led to deterioration of concrete components. This deterioration is a mixture of freeze thaw damage and corrosion-based damage.
The design work for the bridge rehabilitation is completed and construction will begin in the Spring of 2019 and will extend into 2020.
