New Ulm Bridge Open Today 24 Sep 13

The bridge repair work on the Highway 14/15 Bridge over Minnesota River in New Ulm is complete, and the bridge did open to traffic today (TUE). This comes around a week ahead of schedule. The bridge has been closed since September 17th to accommodate repair work on the railings.  A Mn/DOT crew strengthened the rail by filling in selected gaps with reinforced concrete.  This additional strength will reportedly provide an added measure of safety until the bridge is replaced in 2018.
