The Shaw-Lundquist Skybridges projects in Minneapolis are a part of a new Minneapolis skyway system that according to the Star Tribune, is now the largest skyway system in the world.
As part of a joint venture with Ryan Companies, Shaw-Lundquist is the general contractor of two separate skyway projects, the Ryan Skybridges and MSFA Stadium Skybridges.
Our Ryan Skybridges project consists of three individual skyways that connect from the Haaf Parking Ramp to the new Wells Fargo Towers. Upon completion, the skyways will connect from Haaf Parking ramp to Wells Fargo Block 68 Parking Ramp, to Block 69, ending at the Block 70 parking ramp.
The MSFA Stadium Skybridge is approximately 460 ft long and connects from Block 70 parking ramp to the new Vikings Stadium.
We have successfully coordinated various road closures, weekend and night work, and pier installation near the light rails with little disruption to daily operations. Careful planning and continuous communication have allowed Shaw-Lundquist to maintain a positive relationship with the City and pedestrians of Minneapolis throughout this complex construction project.
As a Minnesota-based Construction Company, we understand the convenience of these skyways and their importance to the city of Minneapolis. Minneapolis workers, residents and visitors are sure to enjoy these skyways as they avoid the cold of future Minnesota winters or want to expedite their daily commute.
