South Branch Wild Rice River Bridge
Posted May 7, 2013, by Joe Fishbein (jmf [at] visi [dot] com)

Bridge 1850 is open to traffic. We did a fracture-critical inspection on it today. A section of approach road south of the bridge that had been washed out has been repaired with concrete pavement and a lot of rip-rap.
