City to Close Bridge on Lindahl Road
Hermantown, Minn. – Hermantown’s City Council passed a resolution Monday, March 2, authorizing the closing of the bridge spanning the Midway River on Lindahl Road.
The bridge, located on a gravel stretch of Lindahl Road in southwest Hermantown, was either slated for significant repairs or removal. With the cost of repairs slated to be roughly four times the cost of removal, combined with the environmental benefits to Midway River, the City Council voted 5-0 to pass the measure.
The resolution and vote followed a December public information meeting with residents.
The exact date of closure and removal of the bridge will be set following a spring inspection of the bridge’s current status. Initial expectations are that the bridge will remain open until the 2021 construction season.
