City aims for June reopening of Sabo bridge

The Sabo bridge may be open to pedestrian and bike traffic starting June 4. That’s according to Minneapolis Public Works Director Steve Kotke, who offered a very brief update to members of the city council yesterday.

“I’d mentioned to you at the last council meeting that I was shooting for – my goal was to have the bridge open by Memorial [Day] weekend,” said Kotke. “I am not going to meet that.”

Kotke said the city is still two to three weeks away from finding out what caused a pair of cables to fall from the bridge in February. He didn’t offer an estimate of how long repairs will take.

    I haven’t seen anybody working there for two or three weeks. It is serving mighty effectively as a way to slow down traffic.

    Just another boondoggle due to the wasting of tax money by the city council in another attempt to turn the city into something that New York and San Francisco will admire.

    Too many comments? I doubt that I have had three comments to MPR articles in the past month.
