The Maryland Avenue Bridge over Interstate 35E just north of downtown St. Paul is coming down beginning July 13. The street will be closed until early or mid-September, when it reopens with a new bridge in place. Workers are building the new bridge at a nearby site, and in what might signal the future of bridge construction, a giant robotic conveyor belt will roll the span into place during a 12-hour window over two weekends in August.
