As one of the final steps of the Highway 610 project, the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) announced in early December the demolition of the 101st Avenue NE bridge over I-94 in Maple Grove before the end of 2016. 

"The bridge is no longer needed because the new alignment of Highway 610 is along the previous alignment of 101st Avenue and the ramps between I-94 and Highway 610 are alongside the old bridge," MnDOT wrote in a statement.

Due to the weather forecast for the weekend of Dec. 16, combined with the holiday shopping season, led MnDOT postpone the demolition until 2017. 

"The demolition would have meant a full closure and detour of the interstate while the bridge was dismantled…and it will still require a full weekend closure early next year," MnDOT wrote in a statement.

Weather will be assessed in January and MnDOT is anticipated to then determine a new bridge removal date.
