Drone launched to survey the bridge!

Short line bridge study is underway

By SOREN JENSEN

We are pleased to report that our hired DRONE was launched yesterday, to begin our new engineering study of the Short Line Bridge over the Mississippi River.

The drone will create a 3D map of the bridge, which will then be used by the engineers from Kimley-Horn to complete the study, which will estimate what it would take to shore up the bridge and make it safe for biking and walking.

We expect to have the study done later this summer, and we’ll schedule a community meeting in Saint Paul to share the results this fall.

Thanks to everyone who is supporting our efforts to Extend the Greenway over the river and through Saint Paul!

Soren Jensen is Midtown Greenway Executive Director
