Arches of Lowry bridge near completion


The Lowry Bridge arches are close to being completed, and they are looking tremendous. Ever since seeing the original proposals, I was quite excited at the prospect that the bridge could become a visual feature that would come to define north Minneapolis in a more positive light. (Okay, and northeast too. We’ll let them bask in the glory a bit.) If anything, it seems my initial reaction was understated and I can’t wait to see it completed.

The final piece of the arches is expected to be put in place within a week. A press conference and other festivities will be scheduled to commemorate the event.
