mpls: Lowry Ave Bridge, in the Camden News

Camden News has this:

The Hennepin County Board did pass the $30 million funding for the Lowry Corridor and Lowry Bridge (as written about by John Helgeland in the August 2005 Camden News). The resolutions authorize County staff to submit requests for State capital bonding appropriations on behalf of the Lowry Avenue Corridor project in the amount of $5 million (pursuant to Department of Finance requirements). They also authorized County staff to submit requests for State capital bonding appropriations on behalf of the Lowry Avenue Bridge Replacement in the amount of $24,300,000.

Huh? Didn't they just do a major renovation of the Lowry Ave. bridge? Now they want to replace it?

Am I missing something here?

I've lived here (in NE) for 3 years and it seems like the bridge has been closed for 2 of them! I've always liked that bridge. It's functional, interesting, historical, and probably a lot cheaper than building a new one...
