City OKs extended bridge work
When Lunda/Ames developed a bridge construction timeline, the contractors knew they would have to work around high water during the spring floods. They planned work outside the river the entire month of April. What they didn't expect, however, was for water levels to stay close to flood stage through May and into June.
"The river has stayed up higher than normal for an extended period of time," bridge project manager Steve Kordosky told the Hastings City Council Monday night.
