Bridge over Midtown Greenway closed to motor vehicle traffic

- The Fremont Avenue Bridge over the Midtown Greenway in Minneapolis is officially closed to vehicle traffic. Only bicyclists and pedestrians are allowed on the historic bridge.

The City of Minneapolis says after a load limit was placed on the bridge after a structural analysis, its seen vehicles crossing the bridge that exceeded that limit. In order to prevent the bridge from degrading more, no motor vehicles will be allowed to cross until the City and Hennepin County can find a long-term solution.

The bridge is 103 years old.
