Crash slows traffic over Highway 61 bridge
A crash on the Highway 61 bridge slowed traffic through Hastings considerably Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 1.
The crash was reported at 3:50 p.m. and resulted in a total closure of the bridge for a brief time. Responders worked quickly to open first one lane and then both lanes to traffic, but progress along Highway 61 in Hastings remains slow. As of 4:15 p.m., northbound cars were backed up as far away as the LeDuc Historic Estate at 17th Street.
