Bridge replacement project in Lansing Township to start Monday

Mower County will be starting work soon on a county bridge replacement project as Mower County Public Works Director and Engineer Mike Hanson talked with KAUS News concerning the project that will involve the bridge on County State Aid Highway 2, or 270th Street beginning Monday…

Hanson stated that the decision to replace the bridge dates back to rehabilitation work conducted on the bridge’s pilings in 2021…

Hanson went on to talk about box culverts to be installed around the county next year, replacing bridges that are at or near 100 years old in some cases…

Hanson stated in a news release that traffic control and detour signage will be erected to alert the traveling public, and he added that motorists are asked to utilize the detour, stay on paved roads, and limit any travel on township roads as much as possible.  If anyone has any questions concerning the project, you can call the Mower County Public Works Department at (507) 437-7718.
