  • Making Progress

    Engineers overseeing the U.S. Highway 34 – Missouri River bridge projects in western Mills County say substantial progress was made over the summer and they’re optimistic construction work will stay on schedule.

    “I think things are moving along fairly well. Obviously, it’s helped that we haven’t had a lot of rain the last couple summers,” Jensen Construction project engineer Landon Streit said. “The river’s been pretty stable. The only time it really came up was after Memorial Day.”
