A snooper truck will be used to evaluate both bridges, MnDOT stated in a release. It is a specialty vehicle that has a multi-jointed arm with a basket attached at the end to hold the bridge inspector.

The vehicle will allow the inspection team to maneuver under the bridge while the vehicle is parked on the bridge deck.

The upcoming inspection is one of several that MnDOT is performing across southeastern Minnesota this year, which includes 404 structures and 520 bridges.

Additional information about upcoming road construction projects can be found by visiting the MnDOT website.
