Hastings Bridge Coalition forming
The squeaky wheel gets the grease.
If the old saying is true, it seems the stakeholders in the Hastings Bridge are getting serious about squeaking.
In 1989, the Metropolitan Council identified a list of bridges that were in need of replacement. At that time, both the Hastings Bridge and Stillwater Lift Bridge had poorer ratings than the Wakota Bridge in Newport, yet it was the replacement of the Wakota Bridge that got started first.
