Onsite work slows for steel fabrication

The Boom Island-Nicollet Island Bridge rehabilitation project is making good progress and the bridge is expected to reopen this fall. 

Onsite work will slow for a few weeks while steel necessary for structural repairs is fabricated offsite. Please continue to follow the posted pedestrian and bike detours and stay out of the construction area.

The Mississippi River East Channel below the bridge is closed to all boat traffic until the bridge reopens, so the Paddle Share kayak return station has been relocated to the Boom Island Boat Launch.
