Nielsville Bridge
Posted May 13, 2016, by Joe Fishbein (jmfmando [at] gmail [dot] com)

This bridge is currently closed to traffic, due to serious deck deterioration (including two large holes near the west end). We did a deck delamination survey of the bridge in late April. Polk (MN) and Traill (ND) counties are trying to decide whether to repair the deck, replace the deck or replace the bridge.
