New bridge to be completed in 2014
Hastings residents finally got the news they've waited years for -- a new bridge is coming!
The current Highway 61 bridge over the Mississippi River in Hastings opened for traffic in the early 1950s. It is now the most heavily-traveled two-lane bridge in the state.
Construction is now under way on a new four-lane bridge.
The best news for travelers is that the current river crossing will be open for traffic even during construction of the new bridge.
