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.

Southbound traffic, always backed up at this time of day, was backed more than usual.
