The new Larpenteur Avenue bridge over Interstate 35E finished moving into place early Friday morning.

A representative from the Minnesota Department of Transportation says the move was completed around 2 a.m. Friday and that the bridge is now fully resting on the abutments and piers.

Crews had closed Interstate 35E in both directions between Wheelock Parkway and Larpenteur Avenue from 10 p.m. Thursday through 5 a.m. Friday to complete the move; all lanes are now open to traffic.
