MANKATO, Minn. – The Hwy 14/15 bridge over the Minnesota River in New Ulm is scheduled to open to traffic Tuesday, Sept. 24.

The Hwy 14/15 bridge has been closed since Sept. 17 to accommodate repair work on the railings. 

The bridge crew from the Minnesota Department of Transportation  strengthened  the rail by filling in selected gaps with reinforced concrete.  This additional strength  will provide an added measure of safety until the bridge is replaced in 2018.
