MnDOT Saves 'Photographers' Hole' From 24th Street Bridge

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- One of the photographers' holes that allowed photographers to take iconic pictures of the Minneapolis skyline has been saved after the bridge was torn down.

On Monday, MnDOT's Dave Aeikens tweeted that the agency saved one of the photographers' holes and the plaque from the 24th Street Bridge.

The bridge offered a unique view of the Minneapolis skyline, and photographers from all over took advantage of the location.

MnDOT crews began tearing down the pedestrian bridge, which stretched across Interstate 35W, beginning on June 14.

It's part of the $239 million reconstruction project of I-35W from 43rd Street to I-94. The 24th Street Bridge is one of 11 bridges that span I-35W that will eventually be replaced.

The new pedestrian bridge will be finished with the rest of the I-35W project in 2021.
