The new Highway 40 Milan Bridge opened for vehicles just before the July 4th weekend. A restriction remains in place for oversize vehicles.
The project includes the replacement of the bridge on Highway 40 that crosses Lac qui Parle Lake, known as the Milan Bridge, located three miles west of Milan. The project also includes pedestrian access improvements. Historical elements are being incorporated into the new bridge using iron railing on both sides of the bridge. Stonework will be hand placed to closely match the original construction done by the Works Progress Administration in 1939.
