The Robert St. Bridge crossing the Mississippi River
in downtown St. Paul will close for six weeks in summer 2020 for repairs. The historic rainbow arch bridge was built in 1926.

We will partner with Ramsey County and the city of St. Paul to determine appropriate ownership of Robert St. and gather community input on the needs of the Robert St. corridor between 12th St. in downtown St. Paul and Annapolis St. in West St. Paul.
