Hwy 100 Pedestrian Bridge Project Taking Longer Than Expected
Construction on the Hwy 100 pedestrian bridge that carries the Bassett Creek Trail between Crystal and Golden Valley is nearing an end. The bridge closed in late June and was expected to reopen by Aug 31, but the work has taken longer.
Part of the reason the project has taken so long is the railings had to be removed and painted off site, which was a requirement of the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MNDOT). Once the railings are finished (scheduled for later this week), they will be reinstalled. The fence along the approaches is currently not scheduled for painting. When it does get scheduled, it is expected the fence can be repainted with the bridge open to traffic.
