Rochester bridges to get a good cleaning — at night
Minnesota Department of Transportation crews will clean bridges over U.S. highways 52 and 63 at night from Sunday through June 16.
The bridges will be from 55th Street Northwest to the 52-63 interchange and on 40th Street South on 63, MnDOT says. There are 30 bridges in all.
Crews will begin at 8 p.m. and go through 6 a.m. They will use high-pressure hoses to spray gutters and joints and also inspect for any damage from last winter. Sand and other debris are swept away before bridges are hosed down.
