MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The Sabo bike and pedestrian bridge, which was closed since a pair of support cables broke in February, is reopening Friday afternoon to foot and bike traffic.

Structural support was added underneath the bridge deck in the days following the bridge’s closure. Minneapolis is awaiting a report on what caused the cables to break loose in the first place.

The Sabo Bridge is a 215-foot long cable-stayed suspension bridge that opened in November 2007 to carry Midtown Greenway bicycles and pedestrians over Hiawatha Avenue.

The bridge was built by Hennepin County and turned over to Minneapolis when construction was completed.
