There is apparently controversy about the construction/repair of the bicycle/pedestrian crossing of MN43 across the river at Winona!
Apparently, MNDOT is using creosote-treated wood for the crossing. Exposure to creosote can cause irritation of the skin, and eating it is an especially bad plan.
MNDOT points out that it’s a river crossing, so metal is a bad plan. No one has suggested that bridges are meant to be crossed, not camped out upon or eaten.
Me, I still think bikes can do just fine on the pavement of the bridge proper, as I have every time I’ve ever crossed that bridge on a bicycle.
