Is the city of Winona broke or is this an April Foolís joke that didnít know when to stop? Does the entire city government commute via helicopter and never set one tire on a city street? Boy, they donít know what theyíre missing. For the rest of us, though, every trip is a free carnival ride!
Occasionally; I need to travel to Wisconsin, however, navigating the pot holes at the base of the bridge has made this a very unpleasant experience.
Iíve lived in the Twin Cities my whole life and moved to Winona two years ago. My recollection is that Minneapolis and St. Paul never let the road get this out of hand.
Iís summer now and the chance of a hard freeze is pretty unlikely, so letís start patching the streets...please!
Highway 43 Bridge maintenance is the responsibility of the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
