Following the closure of the Griggs Street bike/ped bridge over I94 in St. Paul, the city plans to close I94 this weekend to remove said bridge.
Per the Pi Press:
- I-94 westbound between Lexington and Snelling will be closed midnight Friday – noon Saturday, including the entrance ramps.
- I-94 eastbound will be closed between Snelling and Lexington avenues from 10 p.m. Friday through noon Saturday.
A new bridge is to be built next summer. I’d assume that this tear-down is both to prep for that construction, and to ensure people don’t hop barricades to use the bridge.
