I'm the recipient of the bridge. It will be put back into use in Osakis MN as a limited use river crossing. It is scheduled to be moved this spring (2016). Installation date is not yet scheduled.

I am looking for bids for installation. My email is joelio_007@hotmail.com. If you put "bridge" in the subject line it will get to me.
