While the progress may be slow and there is much work left to be done, improvements in Yankton County’s infrastructure, specifically bridges are moving forward.
Commission Chair Cheri Loest says Tuesday, the Yankton County Commission approved moving forward with a grant application for a replacement project on the Stone Church Bridge.
Loest says rather than replacing the structure, current plans are to refurbish the Johnson Bridge.
Loest says significant progress has been made on improving a number of the smaller bridges throughout the county that were in some of the worst condition.
If the grant replace the Stone Church Bridge is awarded, that project could get underway as soon as 2023.
