The St. Paul City Council has approved a plan to repair the damaged RiverCentre ramp.


The council approved spending $1.25 million to install netting to protect vehicles and people from any potential falling concrete. The ramp was completely closed for more than a month after a portion of the ceiling fell on a car.

The ramp is now partially reopened. More levels will reopen in the coming months.

Ultimately, RiverCentre officials want to demolish and rebuild the ramp. But they were only allotted enough money in the last bonding bill to tear it down.

The council approved the measure by a vote of 6-0. One council member was excused from the meeting.
