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.
