TKDA helped stimulate economic growth with new bridge design over difficult terrain.
TKDA was retained by the City of Saint Paul Public Works Department to design the bridge on Phalen Boulevard that crosses over four BNSF Railway tracks and a Union Pacific Railway mainline track, all at the historic Westminster Junction. The Westminster Junction Bridge and the railroad tracks form a three-tier system. As an integral part of the new Phalen Boulevard which connects Saint Paul’s East Side to Downtown Saint Paul, the Westminster Junction Bridge crosses difficult terrain. The main purpose of the Phalen Boulevard Project was to not only help stimulate economic growth, but also bring development and opportunities to East Side residents.
