Winona Bridge Inspection



The Minnesota Department of Transportation says the Highway 43 bridge in Winona passed its inspection in June.

Spokesperson Kristen Kammueller told Winona Radio News the four-day annual inspection that took place the week of June 10th, found no major changes from an inspection that took place a year ago.

Kammueller said no major repairs are needed on the bridge as Winona awaits the start of the construction project next year that will see a new bridge built and the existing bridge rehabbed.

That project is expected to be completed in 2017 at cost of between $150,000,000 and $175,000,000.

Meanwhile...the next step in the project is a meeting of the Highway 43 Bridge Project Advisory Committee. The group of local stakeholders will meet on Thursday, July 11th, at 2:00 p.m. at the Tandeski Center.

The group is expecting an update on the project and the possible release of some new information.

That meeting will not be open to the public.
