Sneak Preview of New Sabo Bridge Over Hiawatha

The Roadguy at the Star Tribune posted a virtual look at the Sabo Bridge over Hiawatha Avenue that will give bicyclists and pedestrians easy access on the Midtown Greenway. The birdge will be completed in late 2007. A few facts:

* Length, including approaches: 2,200 feet
* Main span: 220 feet
* Height of tower: About 100 feet.
* Cost: $5.1 million, mostly from federal and Hennepin County funds.

It’s a lot of money for a bridge. But it does look quite fancy and will have lights at night and an observation deck. Check out the video, it’s kind of neat.
