Lowry Avenue Bridge Minneapolis

Lowry Avenue Bridge Minneapolis on a cold winter night.

After more than four years without a bridge connecting north and northeast Minneapolis, more than 350 people celebrated the grand opening of a new Lowry Avenue bridge on Saturday morning with boisterous fanfare that included a parade, jet flyover and water ski show.

“This is truly a great day, a long time coming,” former Hennepin County Commissioner Mark Stenglein said. “If we liked the old bridge, we’ll love this one. The old one stood 100 years. This one will stand a thousand years.”

Dozens of residents and bridge construction workers attended the celebration, snapping photos of the towering, white steel arches that span the bridge, which an estimated 16,000 cars will pass over each day.

About waynem

As a Minnesota based photographer and artist I have been greatly influenced by the Upper Midwest. I focus my skills and energies on portraits, landscapes, cityscapes, architectural and fine art work. My best work comes from images first painted in my mind. I mull over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture. The result is images that deeply touch people's emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams. My images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary to communicate their shared vision and values. Book and magazine publishers have featured my images on their covers. My photographs also grace and enhance the decor of many fine homes.
