Winona Bridge Plans Move Forward
Folks who like the idea of a second bridge over the river at Winona might
'like' a new Facebook page promoting the project. Minn-DOT plans to begin building that bridge around July of next year. As in La Crosse, the idea in Winona would be to have two downtown bridges carry traffic across the Mississippi. On Facebook, the information page is marked 'Winona Bridge Project.' The existing bridge carries about 11-thousand vehicles a day. Structural flaws found on that bridge about five years ago hastened the move to build another bridge at Winona.
