Due to the I-35W bridge collapse the City of Minneapolis is encouraging people to bike and walk to destinations to help ease traffic congestion. As you can see many of the local roadways in and around the freeway bridge have been closed.

In addition the Stone Arch Bridge and Bridge #9 are also closed until further notice. Bicyclists and pedestrians who need to cross the river must do so at either the Washington Avenue bridge at the U of M campus or at the 3rd Ave Bridge in Downtown.

Downtown bicycle commuters who regularly use West River Parkway are encouraged to use the LRT trail to and from Downtown.
