Hastings’ missing link

Where’s the missing link for the new Highway 61 bridge over the Mississippi River in Hastings?


Right here in the upper right…


The span has been sitting near Lock and Dam #2…


It’s going to be floated down the river on a barge next month and hoisted into place, an event that will likely draw thousands of “sidewalk superintendents” to the river.

    It took me a while to figure it out but MnDOT is doing the same type of thing over 35E at Maryland.

    It was not MnDOT it was Lunda as well on 35E.
