North Loop bridge will finally get fixed


A dilapidated "pony truss" bridge in the North Loop is set for a makeover this summer.

The small bridge, which has been closed to traffic for a decade, sits on 4th Avenue North between the Heritage Landings Apartments, 415 N. 1st St., and the new Rock Island Lofts development, 111 4th Ave. N.

The railroad installed the "pony truss" (a small bridge with no overhead bracings) years ago, said Jeff Johnson, a city of Minneapolis bridge maintenance engineer.
