MnDOT says the Highway 14 and 15 Minnesota River Bridge in New Ulm could open as early as next week. MnDOT spokesperson Rebecca Arndt says crews are hoping the bridge could be open to traffic as early as the afternoon of Wednesday, December 18th. Motorists are advised to expect traffic control changes at the intersection of highway 14 and Nicollet County Road 37. MnDOT says the current all-way stop will revert back to a two-way stop, with thru traffic on highway 14. Crews are expected to return in the springs to complete aesthetic work.
