New Hastings bridge to be open in full by mid-November

HASTINGS, Minn. -- All four lanes of the new Highway 61 bridge in Hastings will be open before Thanksgiving, according to project manager Steve Kordosky.

Kordosky put the opening of the bridge sometime in mid-November, which is about a month ahead of schedule.

Crews are making quick work of the old Highway 61 bridge here. Much of the center span of the iron structure has already been cut away. The old structure is being hauled to a landfill.
