The Swinging Bridge in Glen Park is a local historic landmark.

Work starts at Swinging Bridge


A project to stabilize the foundations of Glen Park's suspension bridge has begun, according to City Engineer Reid Wronski.

The City Council approved the $117,000 project bid in July to St. Paul-based Engineering and Construction Innovators.

Wronski said the foundation upgrade for Swinging Bridge is needed because of normal wear-and-tear caused by erosion, moisture, freezing and thawing. The focus is on foundation supports on both slopes of the bridge.
