The City of Minneapolis Department of Public Works recently awarded Lunda Construction Co.—a subsidiary of Tutor Perini Corp.—a $50 million contract for the 10th Avenue Historic Bridge Rehabilitation Project.
The bridge, originally built in 1929 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, currently carries approximately 10,000 vehicles and hundreds of pedestrians over the Mississippi River each day.
The bridge rehabilitation will include, among other things, replacement of the entire bridge deck, a new protected bikeway, sidewalks, complete removal and reconstruction of certain bridge features, concrete restoration work to deteriorated concrete at various locations, and reconstruction of the south and north roadways up to the intersections—including new utilities, surfacing, and lighting.
Bridge construction work is already underway with substantial completion anticipated in the summer of 2021. The contract value will be included in the company’s fourth quarter 2019 backlog.
