The 2,300’ long Winona Bridge carries southbound lanes of Trunk Highway 43 across the Mississippi River. The new bridge features a 450’ main span over the commercial navigation channel, providing a wide USCG navigation opening that matches the existing bridge. The concrete box girder structure was built from above, eliminating impacts to river traffic during construction. Community stakeholders worked with the project team to develop simple, cost-effective aesthetic features that included color, pier shapes, accent lighting, and sidewalk overlooks at each of the main span piers.
