The Minnesota Slip Bridge, known to some as the Blue Bridge in Canal Park will be closed Monday, March 5, 2018 for maintenance and will get a new color scheme.

The bridge that many people cross by thousands of people each year will stay closed until May 3, 2018. The work being done will include:

  • Encapsulating the bridge.
  • Sandblasting the old blue paint before applying new teal colored paint.

The Minnesota Slip Bridge got manufactured parts and a new rack and pinion system to ensure reliable operations and public access last Spring. This painting project is the final step in renewing the beloved Slip Bridge.
