The new Yankton Bridge between South Dakota and Nebraska is being awarded an American Transportation Award as one of the top ten projects in the country. Mary Joe Oie with the Nebraska Department of roads says this is a big deal.
“We’re competing actually against states like Delaware, Maryland, California, New York and those are states with a lot more population and a lot more money and we are just so excited to be up there.”
Completion of the new bridge at Yankton is the culmination of more than 20 years of work by community members from both states. The project is up for the number one spot on October 25th. You can vote by browsing to www.americastransportationaward.org.
