The Highway 61 bridge in Hastings will be closed in both directions when the main span for the new Hastings bridge is floated into place. The closure is expected to last around 48 hours, but the exact length of time isn't yet known.

In addition, river traffic will not be allowed during the move.

The public boat launch will be shut down, too.

There is still no firm date for the move, but it is expected to take place just after Labor Day.
