The Minnesota Slip Bridge, or the Blue Bridge in Canal Park, will be temporarily closed starting next week.
Crews will be applying a fresh coat of paint on the bridge, but will also need to sandblast the old paint before applying the new layer.
The bridge will be closed from March 5th through May 3rd.
Last spring, custom manufactured parts, as well as a new rack and pinion, were installed in order to keep it reliable and open for public use.
The paint job is the last step in renewing the Slip Bridge.
