Red Lake River Bridge Plan Moves Forward 19 Jun 17

A controversial Red Lake River Bridge took center stage at last week’s Pennington County Board meeting, after commissioners approved a plan to higher consultants and appraisers for the proposed new bridge on Thief River Falls expanding south side.

The project would cross the Red Lake River at Mark Boulevard connecting on the east side with Pennington County Road #8, fronting Challenger Elementary School. The new route would directly connect Highway #59 on Thief River Falls east side to the West Side By-Pass, also known as Veterans Memorial Highway.

The proposed project is part of Pennington County’s Five Year Road and Bridge Plan.
