MANKATO, MN (AP) - Visitors to Minneopa State Park will have reduced views of the park's twin waterfalls while a 90-year-old bridge between them is rebuilt.
The Department of Natural Resources says the work will begin in mid-August and is expected to last into October.
DNR spokesman Scott Roemhildt (ROAM'-hilt) says the best view of the lower falls won't be available from the easiest route during construction, although a roughly half-mile hike to the other side will get a visitor there. That route won't be handicap-accessible.
Views of the two falls from the bridge won't be available during construction either.
The rest of the park won't be affected.
