Emergency Road Closure for West River Parkway

on

West River Parkway closed between Portland Ave and 4th Ave N

A sinkhole that formed next to the bicycle path adjacent to West River Parkway near Mill Ruins Park has caused the closing of West River Parkway between Portland Avenue and 4th Avenue N. Detours for the area will be posted.

The bike trail has been closed with bike traffic diverted to the nearby pedestrian path. Cyclists are asked to yield to pedestrians. West River Parkway will be closed until Minneapolis Park Board and City of Minneapolis staff can assess any potential impact to the parkway.
