Centennial Lakes Park new bridges are installed and ready for your visit.
The new bridges are easy to cross with strollers, wheelchairs or other mobility devices. A wide path with minimal grade leads to each of the two bridges.
The old bridges were decaying, not ADA compliant and in need of replacement. Construction began Sept. 10, 2018, with a hiatus over winter. Work resumed after the snow melt, including installation of the stone facade and updating the surrounding landscaping.
A few finishing touches are still to come, including the decorative railing and lighting.
The Edina City Council awarded the Centennial Lakes Pedestrian Bridge project to Rosti Construction in February 2018 for a contracted price of $989,793. The project also has design and engineering fees totaling $100,000, and a contingency budget of $40,000, for a total project cost of $1,130,000.
