Finally, some decent bridge news from Minnesota--this bridge is being rehabilitated to lengthen its service life another 50 years! The bridge is getting some new gusset plates, some rivets are being replaced (don't know if they'll be replaced with rivets or bolts), some concrete deck is being patched, and it's going to be sandblasted and painted. They chose charcoal gray for the color; bland, but sure beats a new UCEB!! Rehabilitation efforts have been somewhat hampered by the flooding, but the bridge is excpected to be open sometime in October.
This bridge may be in danger--The massive flooding that took place here over the last day or two has washed out the road right up to the abutment, and if the Money Creek Bridge in Houston County is any indication of what happens to historic bridges when the road washes out from around them (even if the bridges themselves are not damaged at all), this bridge may be history very soon.
My understanding is that MnDOT will be replacing this structure within 2 or 3 years.
