Old Highway 19 bridge south of Morton closed to vehicular traffic
According to the Minnesota Department of Transportation the bridge, which was built in 1927, will remain open to ATVs, snowmobiles and pedestrians. It has been used as a local-traffic-only access to Sulphur Lake since 1997.
Recent MnDOT inspections found that concrete deterioration on the bridge, located one mile south of Morton, has progressed requiring restriction of bridge loads. No critical bridge deficiencies were found during the inspections.
