Winona celebrates major bridge opening
The City of Winona kicked off the opening and dedication of the new Winona Bridge this past Saturday. The event offered the public a chance to walk the bridge before it opened to vehicular traffic.
The celebration also marked the beginning of the restoration phase of the existing historic bridge, located beside the new bridge. Once the restoration is complete, citizens will have a four-lane structure that provides passage across the Mississippi River and into Wisconsin.
We were joined by the Winona Winhawk Marching Band as well as both Minnesota’s state senators, Al Franken and Amy Klobuchar.
It was exciting to attend this historic event and celebrate this project’s milestone with the community. Mead & Hunt has worked on this project since construction began, and we are excited to see the public use the new bridge. Mead & Hunt congratulates the Minnesota Department of Transportation for their hard work and dedication on this project.
Jay Wheaton, PE is a transportation engineer with a wide variety of construction management experience from two-lane rural highways to complex urban streets as well as freeway and bridge projects. Jay is committed to providing high quality work exceeding clients’ expectations.
Mead & Hunt’s Bob Frame and Christina Slattery also served on the Winona Bridge project’s Visual Quality Review Committee. This group was responsible for preserving the aesthetic integrity of the project while seeing the finished product matched the historic characteristics of downtown Winona.
