Highway 10 overflow bridge north of Little Falls scheduled to open to traffic Aug. 30



BAXTER, Minn. — The lane restrictions on the Highway 10 overflow bridge over the Mississippi River north of Little Falls will be lifted on Monday, Aug. 30. At that time, the westbound ramp from Morrison County Road 76 to westbound Highway 10 will also open to traffic. 


Motorists are asked to drive with caution and be aware of crews conducting off-road completion work for the next two weeks.   


The bridge was closed to traffic on Wednesday, March 17, due to damage from an ice jam in the main channel and erosion to the overflow bridge. Crews built temporary traffic crossovers on each end of the bridge and stabilized the westbound lanes to allow motorists on the bridge. Motorists had been restricted to a single lane in each direction on the newly-constructed westbound bridge.
