City of Fridley, Minnesota
An existing Main Street (Anoka County CSAH 102) Bridge did not provide a safe crossing for pedestrians and bicyclists. There was no separation from traffic and only 1.5-foot shoulders. Visibility was limited due to the crown of the bridge and heavy truck use made on-road crossing dangerous.
Bolton & Menk completed a $1.9 million federal aid project consisting of 8,500 feet of shared use trail connecting 44th Avenue to 57th Avenue on the west side of Main Street. A 200-foot prefabricated steel through truss pedestrian bridge spans I-694.
The project provides a connection for pedestrians and bicyclists on Main Street. The project extends the trail south across I-694 and enables residents living in southern Fridley and northern Columbia Heights to reach transit, employment, and commercial areas.
