Mill Avenue Mississippi River Bridge To Close April 14th

The Mill Avenue Bridge across the Mississippi River in Northeast Brainerd will close on Monday, April 14. Crow Wing County Highway Engineer Lyndon Robjent said the old bridge is going to get a new driving surface. Robjent said the morning rush hour traffic will be allowed across but the bridge will be closed later on that day. Traffic will be routed around the bridge, either through Brainerd or on Wise and Beaver Dam Road west to Brainerd and Baxter. Robjent said the work is scheduled to be done by June 27th in plenty of time of the Fourth of July weekend. Robjent said the bridge is supported by steel and concrete pillars and understructure and is not a suspension bridge so there are no gusset plates to be concerned about.
