Eisenhower Bridge of Valor Over Mississippi River Provides Gateway to Wisconsin and Minnesota

Challenge

The City of Red Wing needed to make an important decision: should they replace or rehabilitate a key bridge spanning the border between Minnesota and Wisconsin?

Solution

After close examination of the bridge, the SEH team determined the structure should be completely replaced with a new, steel box girder bridge. The analysis also concluded that both bridge approaches should be reconfigured.
