Hwy 4 bridge in Brown County to open Nov. 11


MANKATO, Minn. – Motorists will be able to drive on Hwy 4 south of Sleepy Eye late on Friday, Nov. 11, after crews complete work on the new bridge over the Little Cottonwood River. 


The newly replaced bridge is slightly wider with better shoulders. 


The Minnesota Department of Transportation would like to thank motorists for their patience during this lengthy project, which was delayed for several weeks due to the Minnesota state government shutdown.


Duininck Inc. of Prinsburg is the primary contractor on the project.
