Rapid repairs result in business as usual for commuters used to traveling over the Washington Street Bridge.

Repairs are complete

BRAINERD, Minn. – (12:28 p.m.) All lanes on Highway 210 between Fourth Street N and Fourth Street NW, including the Mississippi River Bridge, opened at noon today, Wednesday, July 17.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation thanks you for your patience as we closed the westbound bridge approach drainage system that failed from a storm on July 14. All repairs and new drainage infrastructure is completed.

Stunning news after reports and speculation that it could take several days or maybe even weeks to repair. Kudos to all that assisted in the repairs, the Brainerd PD, State Patrol and others that directed traffic… Also, good work to the majority of drivers that exuded patience due to the uncontrollable events.

Buckle up and safe travels!
