Minnehaha Parkway to close next week

Attention walkers, bikers and scenic-way drivers who use Minnehaha Parkway: Change your plans for early next week.

The parkway will be closed Monday morning until Wednesday afternoon as crews complete bridge work associated with the I-35W/Highway 62 Crosstown project.

Crews will attempt to keep at least one pedestrian/bike path open along the parkway, but the paths will open and close periodically throughout the work.

Drivers can still cross I-35W using 42nd Street, 50th Street, Diamond Lake Road and 60th Street.
