Another Minnesota bridge is being closed because of structural concerns. 

The Lowry Avenue Bridge over the Mississippe River in Minneapolis will close tomorrow at 10 a.m. 

The bridge has long been slated for replacement starting in 2009, but today Hennepin County announced it would close the bridge early and not re-open it until it is replaced. 

Hennepin County commissioner Mark Stenglein joined Tom Crann to discuss the closure.
