McLeod County Bridge Closed Due to Structural Concerns 18 Oct 17

The bridge on McLeod County Road 90 (Koala Road) immediately north of CR 11 (155th street) has been closed due to structural concerns (see map below).

County officials say they were identified during a recent safety inspection.

County Engineer John Brunkhorst says bridge inspectors discovered portions of the wooden substructure were severely decayed and deteriorated, prompting the bridge closure.

There will be no official detour, so local traffic should use adjacent roads.

The timber bridge was built in 1971. The County is reviewing replacement options and working with MnDOT to identify potential State funds that could be utilized for a replacement project.
