Move of 6.5 million pound span of new Hastings bridge expected around Labor Day
Construction continues and preparations are under way throughout the city in anticipation of a big couple days for the new bridge here.
Crews are busy assembling the main span for the new Highway 61 bridge over the Mississippi River. The span, weighing some 6.5 million pounds, will be floated downstream right around Labor Day. It will then be jacked into place.
