Saint Paul’s “Skyway to Nowhere” removed

The Skyway bridge connecting the former Macy’s building with nothing whatsoever made the City of Saint Paul. But, because Saint Paul is supposed to be boring, it has been removed.

Will Ashenmacher of the Saint Paul Pioneer Press:

Over the years, several civic groups had urged the city to have the eyesore removed, but the question of who should pay the $40,000 cost went long unanswered.

“Nobody really wanted to do it. It wasn’t like it was an astronomical cost,” said Lee Krueger, president of the St. Paul Port Authority, which owns the building. “It was just that nobody really wanted to pay up and have it done.”
