They have finally started work on the sidewalk on the MN43 bridge in Winona, hoping for favorable weather to complete the project by October.
Signage still says bikes are legally unwelcome on the bridge. However, enforcement seems lax – when I’ve been in Winona, I did see some cyclists using the roadway. MN43 is a 4-lane bridge with plenty of room for a bicycle and a car to travel efficiently over the rider alongside one another.
Not that I am advocating illegal behavior. I’m just observing.
