Warner Road Bridge Again Fully Open to Auto Traffic; Trail to Reopen This Week

All four lanes of Warner Road Bridge just southeast of downtown Saint Paul re-opened to traffic today - three weeks ahead of schedule. A bicycle and pedestrian trail on the south side of the bridge is expected to also re-open entirely by the end of the week.

Ramsey County Public Works began the $11.7 million project to restore the previously structurally-deficient-rated bridge in late 2013. On- and off-ramps at Childs Road were also reconstructed as part of the project, including safer grade-separated trail crossings. More than 15,000 vehicles will use the bridge each day.

Construction Equipment Guide recently published an in-depth profile of the project.
