The construction of bridge 43550, located approximately 5 miles north of Glencoe on McLeod County Road 15 over the south fork of the Crow River has been suspended until Spring due to weather. McLeod County Engineer John Brunkhorst says the project was supposed to be completed by October 12, 2012 but the bridge contractor, Duininck, Inc. of Prinsburg, MN had issues develop on other projects which led to the late start on this one.
The road continues to be closed to all traffic at the bridge. A signed detour utilizing County Roads 55, 2, and 22 remains in place for Thru Traffic.
The $700,00 bridge, which is being funded with State bridge bonds and County State Aid Highway funds is now expected to be completed around the end of April, 2013 and the road should reopen in early May, 2013.
