The High Bridge

The Smith Avenue High Bridge is a critical connection between Saint Paul's West Side and the Uppertown area, but both bike and pedestrian facilities on the bridge have long been dangerous and unattractive.

In 2018, MnDOT will be redesigning the bridge deck as part of its Highway 149 project. In addition to enhanced railings and a smoother roadway, the project will include both painted bike lanes (adjacent to the roadway) and 8-foot-wide sidewalks protected by a concrete curb.
