Day 69

Cable-stayed bridge!

June 3rd, 2010

The Martin Olav Sabo Bridge


  1. Amanda Brown says:

    You should see it at night! There are blue lights on the sides – very pretty. When they were first turned on, I think there were a lot of near-wrecks at that intersection from people staring at it.

  2. Jason Eppink says:

    Whoa, that beautiful structure is for pedestrians and bicyclists only? Clearly this city has its priorities straight! Much different from your experience in NJ.

  3. James says:

    It’s for bikes and pedestrians only. It connects the two sides of the Midtown Greenway. Welcome to Minneapolis.

  4. Erica says:

    You’ll get to see the first one built in the US when you get to the Tri-Cities (Pasco/Kennewick/Richland), WA.

  5. Colin in Sconi says:

    The way the cables and the steel beam make it look like wings makes me think of the wings on the Milwaukee Art Museum and the pedestrian bridge that connects to it.
