Demolition began on the Hastings Bridge this Wednesday, as motorists in the Twin Cities bid farewell to “Old Blue.” Crews started tearing down the landmark bridge at 7 a.m. The demolition crews will begin by removing the decking on the downtown side.
This morning drivers who use Highway 61 to get to and from Wisconsin are going to notice a big change. The new Hastings Bridge is opening. The bridge over the Mississippi has been under construction for three years.
