MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — After nearly a year of repairs, the Sabo Bridge is ready to reopen to traffic.

Crews say structural repairs are done on the bike and pedestrian bridge and all necessary work has been completed. The bridge was closed after support cables broke loose last winter.

Officials say temporary closures may be necessary in 2013 for painting, lighting and screen installation.

The repairs included installing and retrofitting diaphragm plates on the bridge, including a plate that fractured causing the support cables to break loose.

Crews also replaced both cables that broke and installed monitoring equipment to make sure the repairs continue working properly.
