One of the frustrations vented by News Cut commentators since the Highway 43 bridge in Winona closed a week ago is: Why can’t they keep it open for bicycles?
The bridge, MnDOT announced today, will reopen on Saturday for automobiles, pickups, vans, SUVs and emergency vehicles. But not to bicycles.
During repairs to the gusset plates on the bridge, the sidewalks will be closed.
The ferry service across the Mississippi River will end a week from Friday.
