The Ford Parkway Bridge (Bridge #3575) over the Mississippi River, also known as the Intercity Bridge, provides an important connection between Saint Paul and Minneapolis. Originally constructed in 1927, the Ford Parkway Bridge is on the National Register of Historic Places. In 1973, the bridge was rehabilitated with updates in 2002 to accommodate pedestrian traffic.
The slopes of the Mississippi River on the underside of both embankments have seen significant erosion and the drainage systems have failed. Rani was appointed to correct the erosion on the east side of the river and the clogged outlet pipe for the bridge drainage.
