Portland Avenue and Cedar Avenue will be closed between Portland Avenue and Cedar Avenue starting Monday as crews work to reconstruct he two bridges over the Midtown Greenway.

Both bridges will be closed to all road traffic for the duration of the project. The roads are expected to reopen by December.

The Midtown Greenway will be closed at Cedar Avenue for several days starting May 15 and at Portland Avenue starting May 22 while the bridges are demolished.

Portions of the trail will closed intermittently throughout the project, but Hennepin County says efforts will be made to minimize trail impacts whenever possible.
