MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Beginning Monday the Plymouth Avenue Bridge over the Mississippi River in downtown Minneapolis will be closed to all traffic for repairs until mid-October.

Repairs will take place this year and next year, with this summer focusing on fixing the bridge’s center span. The bridge’s other spans will be repaired in 2013, and that can be done without full road closures.

The Plymouth Avenue Bridge shut down in October 2010 after it was found to have significant deterioration in the cables that run inside the bridge.

Before its closure, the bridge carried more than 14,000 vehicles a day. For more information, click here and click “Plymouth Bridge.”
