I saw this photo on another online post and wanted to share it with you. It belongs in the same category as the planet Saturn when seen for the first time through a telescope - you can't believe it'... Posted on 9/7/10 at 2:47 PM
The Hastings Bridge Project - three years in the making - has reached an exciting and critical milestone: late today, construction crews will reroute the southbound lane of traffic on Highway 61 onto the new Hastings Bridge.
Just two months from now, one lane of traffic in each direction will be running on the new Highway 61 bridge in Hastings.
Steve Kordosky, the project manager from the Minnesota Department of Transportation, said this week that the bridge is right on schedule.
He expects the shift to occur in late May or right around the first of June.
By Tuesday, the landscape in Hastings will be significantly altered for the next 100 years.
The main span for the new Highway 61 bridge here is on schedule to be floated in place, jacked up and secured by the end of the day Monday, Sept. 24.
Highway 61 motorists traveling through Hastings may experience delays beginning June 8 when the roadway is reduced to a single lane between Spiral Bridge Road, near Hub’s Landing, and Third Street in downtown Hastings.
