The Meridian Bridge has been reopened after closing Sunday night.
Yankton City Manager Amy Leon says that the Yankton Police Department received a call last night from a citizen saying that they heard noises from the south side of the bridge.
Leon says that after consulting with Brad Moser, the Yankton City Engineer, they made the decision to close the bridge Sunday night.
Leon explained why they made the decision to close the bridge.
Leon says that after having engineers examine the bridge Monday morning, they found that the bridge was fine, and was safe to be reopened to the public.
Leon added that the city takes public reports concerning public safety seriously, and temporary closure gave the staff time to evaluate the situation.
