Boom Island-Nicollet Island Bridge Repairs Update

The Boom Island-Nicollet Island Bridge is being repaired and will reopen this fall 

Bridge will reopen this fall as onsite steel repairs progress

The Boom Island-Nicollet Island Bridge rehabilitation project is making good progress, although long lead times for steel and timber decking has caused some delay. The bridge is still expected to reopen this fall, likely in October.

Steel repairs are currently taking place at the site of the bridge. Please continue to follow the posted pedestrian and bike detours and stay out of the construction area.

The Mississippi River East Channel below the bridge is closed to all boat traffic until the bridge reopens, so the Paddle Share kayak return station has been relocated to the Boom Island Boat Launch.
