Milling Machine Falls Through Bridge Deck

October 20, 2010

A section of a bridge on Nobles County 1 south of Brewster collapsed Tuesday afternoon as a contractor was working on the bridge deck.

“The contractor was milling the bituminous surface off the bridge deck, preparing it for an overlay that was to take place next week,” explained Nobles County Public Works Director Steve Schnieder. “He had all of the bituminous surface removed except for one pass on the east side.”
