The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, is accepting public comments on a Minnesota Department of Transportation permit application for work associated with improvements to the Trunk Highway 149 High Bridge in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Improvements will include replacing the bridge deck and post-tensioned cables, and repairing cracks in existing piers and deteriorated steel members on the arch.
Dredging activities, filling operations and the placement of barges are also proposed in the river for construction access.
“Following the completion of construction barges would be removed from river, filled areas would be restored to pre-construction conditions and dredged areas would be restored to pre-construction conditions as allowable,” said USACE.
The public review and comment period on the draft plan ends March 12.
