MANKATO — Bridge repair work has been completed on the Highway 14/15 bridge over the Minnesota River in New Ulm. The affected highway sections are scheduled to open to traffic today.
The bridge has been closed since Sept. 17 to accommodate repair work on the railings. A bridge crew from the Minnesota Department of Transportation strengthened the rail by filling in selected gaps with reinforced concrete.
This additional strength will provide an added measure of safety until the bridge is replaced in 2018.
