PHASE 1: ANNE STREET BRIDGE OPENING
Phase 1 of of the MREFPP extends from just West of the Broadway Bridge to just
East of the 3rd Street Bridge. Current design includes pedestrian access to the wet-side of the
project area at a proposed park located at the SE corner of Broadway and 4th Ave. NW. The
pedestrian opening as designed requires 56' lineal feet of removable flood protection
infrastructure in three separate but adjoining openings. The opening sizes are 16', 24', and 16'
respectively. Phase 1 is currently 100% designed; it is expected that approval of the final bid
package will be presented to City Council at the August 2017 meeting.
Motion: to request the SRJB authorize a design addendum to Phase 1 of the Mouse River Enhanced Flood Protection Plan (MREFPP) for the purposes of adding an 8’ pedestrian opening in the flood wall that provides direct access to the Anne Street Bridge. To accommodate operation and maintenance concerns, the Broadway Access flanking openings would be reduced from 16’ to 8’ each.
