Bridge Properties Purchased

The sale of two more properties in the Winona Bridge Project right-of-way have been registered at the Winona County Recorder's Office.
That brings the number of recorded sales in the right-of-way to seven.

The newest sales involved a property owned by Mary L. Blagsvedt for $144,000...and a property owned by Kent and Darla Grover which sold for $175,000.

The total paid by the Minnesota Department of Transportation for the seven properties so far is $1,183,700.
No word on the sale of major businesses in the right-of-way including Dahl Chevrolet, the AmericInn Hotel, and the Severson Sinclair station.

Announced earlier were sales of properties owned by James and Deborah Remlinger, Gale Peterson and Diane Bochmann, Arrow Investments, David Pirkl, and Winona County.

The project is slated to begin sometime in July. Earlier MnDOT said it hoped to have all properties in the right-of-way purchased by the end of 2014.....
