Bridge's anti-icing system not yet active
Just in time for another big blast of cold air, the anti-icing system on the new Hastings bridge is expected to be fired up on or around Jan. 30.
The system’s operations have been delayed due to a leak. The contractor has fixed the problem and Minnesota Department of Transportation engineers are expected to sign off on the fix soon.
It’s another nice step forward for the bridge project, which will be 100 percent completed by May.
