Heartland Trail bridge steel work in progress

Heartland bridge

Concrete is scheduled to be poured next week on the Heartland Trail bridge over the Shallow River between Park Rapids and Nevis on the Heartland Trail. Superintendent Pat Gubbels said the bridge will be completed by the Dec. 30 deadline that will allow snowmobile traffic to use the trail. Restoration of the asphalt sections leading up to the bridge will be completed in the spring of 2010. The bridge will re-open to hikers and bikers after that work has been completed, Gubbels said.
