Bridge replacement near Lake Lillian to start soon

WILLMAR — Construction will start soon on the long-awaited replacement of a bridge in southeastern Kandiyohi County.

A contract was awarded this week to Quam Construction of Willmar for the project on Kandiyohi County Road 134 north of Lake Lillian. Quam's bid of $235,720.25 was the lowest one submitted and fell 2.4 percent below initial estimates.

The deteriorating bridge has been on the county's priority list for replacement for some years now. Because of its condition, it is currently restricted to lower-weight vehicles.

Completion of the new bridge is expected by the end of the year.
