Historic Highway 99 bridge scheduled to be repaired
ST. PETER, Minn. (KEYC) - Motorists traveling on the Highway 99 Minnesota River bridge at St. Peter should watch out for lane restrictions.
On Oct. 4 and 5, crews will be making repairs to the bridge, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT).
Traffic will be reduced to one lane across the bridge with a flagging operation in place.
Weather permitting, crews should complete the repairs by Oct. 5.
The repairs to the historic bridge come after a vehicle struck it earlier this summer, causing damage to overhead steel beams.
MnDOT encourages motorists to check their vehicle’s height and loads before traveling, especially equipment on a trailer.
