Artist Seitu Jones has designed a railing for the new 40th Street Pedestrian Bridge, which will span I-35W at 40th Street, serve pedestrians and bicyclists and link the east and west sections of the River Lake Greenway. The project was selected for Art in Public Places—the City’s percent for art program—by the Public Art Advisory Panel from the City’s Capital Improvement Program. The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MNDOT) is the lead agency on this project and the City is working in partnership with them on the bridge.
