The bridge work is part of a Minnesota Department of Transportation and Clay County project that also includes constructing a roundabout at the intersection of 60th Avenue South and Highway 75 and resurfacing 60th Avenue South between Highway 75 and the Red River.


The entire construction project is scheduled to be completed in late September.
