ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) - The city of Aberdeen is asking the state for over $1 million in funding to help it replace a 40-year-old bridge that crosses a local creek.

The Aberdeen City Council recently approved the application seeking about $1.1 million in bridge improvement grant funds. If approved, the funding would cover about 80 percent of the cost of replacing the Third Avenue bridge that crosses the Moccasin Creek.

Public Works Director Robin Bobzien tells the American News (https://bit.ly/20vLAWA) that the bridge is one of three 40-year-old structures in Aberdeen where weight limits have been reduced.

The bridge over the Moccasin Creek was selected first because it is most heavily traveled. Bobzien says the other two will eventually be replaced.
