New bridge on Hwy. 61 in Hastings is finally up for bids
The request for proposals (RFP) for the construction of a new Highway 61 bridge is now in the hands of potential builders, and the document includes a previously unreleased cost cap of $220 million for the actual construction of the bridge.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation released the RFP Dec. 13 to the three design-build contractor teams it approved for the project in November. The document is also posted on MnDOT's website and is open for the public to view.
