The Minnesota Department on Transportation is convening a meeting of its Winona Bridge Project Advisory Committee next month. The group has not met since 2011. The department has told committee members to expect a 'substantial update' on the bridge project.
The Project Advisory Committee meets September 10 at Minnesota State College - Southeast Technical.
Just last week a proposal for a second two lane bridge parallel to a rehabilitated existing bridge was given passing grades by the Minnesota Historic Preservation Office. Three other proposals involving only the existing bridge are also in the mix.
