Our team gears up for a heavily anticipated 53hr outage this Friday (6/28) – Monday (7/01). This outage will support Metro Transit Lightrail upgrades and exterior skyway improvements including demolition, framing, and installation of new Centria metal panels over Metro Transits right of way.
Work will be performed from aerial lifts operating out of lane shifts and engineered rolling scaffolds that have been designed to roll on top of the West Bank Skyway to keep a safe flow of vehicle and public pedestrian traffic along SE Washington Avenue. Loeffler has been carefully coordinating these activates and planned outages with the University of Minnesota, Hennepin County, City of Minneapolis, and Metro Transits Rail Operations for a year and a half.
Work began earlier this spring and is scheduled to be complete this August.
