Pine St. Bridge

In spite of a bid that came in about a quarter-million dollars higher than the engineer’s estimate, the Yankton City Commission has decided to move forward with reconstruction of the Pine Street Bridge project.

Commissioner David Knoff says having the plan re-designed to remove the cosmetic features planned for bridge in order to cut costs would put the project’s state grant funding at risk without achieving the desired results.

Knoff says communities that include architectural features into their infrastructure projects are demonstrating concern for the city’s appearance.

South Dakota Department of Transportation officials are meeting this Thursday to discuss the Pine Street Bridge reconstruction project.
