A new interactive website is available for the public to learn more about the people and places that are connected to the new Eisenhower Bridge of Valor constructed over the Mississippi River at Red Wing on Highway 63.
The interactive website is a symbolic note to mark the bridge project’s completion. Work has wrapped up on the bridge and the project is considered significantly complete, but there will be some minor work taking place in the spring of 2021.
The website includes a map with pinpoints that highlight elements of the bridge and people connected to it. By clicking on the pinpoints, the public can view brief videos and read information that includes locations in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Additional information chronicles the construction process through photos, key elements of the bridge, and a historical look at the river crossings at Red Wing through recent history.
