An open house centered on the closure of the Smith Avenue High Bridge project will be held Wednesday in St. Paul. According to the Minnesota Department of Transportation, the bridge is expected to close Sept. 5, 2017, through December 2018.
During that time, crews are planning to resurface the road and reconstruct the bridge deck. Crews are also planning to improve drainage, sidewalks and pedestrian accessibility, replace signals at five intersections, and remove some ash trees in the surrounding area.
In February, MnDOT requested public input on renovations to the High Bridge. In the past, the bridge has been the site of suicide attempts.
The open house will be held at the Capital View Cafe in St. Paul, starting at 5 p.m.
