Man falls from Dresbach Bridge (11/10/2013)
By Sarah Squires

A 19-year-old construction worker from Wisconsin suffered life-threatening injuries after a fall Wednesday morning while working on the Dresbach Bridge project.

According to the Winona County Sheriff’s Department and Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT), Logan Scott Goodell, of Wheeler, Wis., fell more than 40 feet while working on Pier #2. He reportedly struck a steel beam on the way down before landing inside a “cofferdam,” a temporary, watertight dry area used when constructing a bridge pier. Police said Goodell was removing a concrete form attached to the new pier, and was not wearing a safety harness because he had just removed the handrail it was attached to.

Winona County deputies, along with multiple area emergency agencies, responded to the accident. A crane fitted with a basket was used to retrieve Goodell from the cofferdam, and he was transported to a local hospital for the treatment of serious injuries. Police had no update on his condition before press time.

Goodell was working on the bridge project for Ames Construction, one of four construction firms named as finalists for the Winona bridge project, which is expected to begin next year.
