Military veterans will be honored with the renaming of the Highway 95 Bridge in North Branch.
Gov. Tim Pawlenty signed the law authorizing the name change to the “Veterans Memorial Bridge” March 30. The Transportation Department will adopt a suitable marking design and erect the appropriate signs. Community funding will pay for new signs.
Rep. Jeremy Kalin (DFL-North Branch) and Sen. Rick Olseen (DFL-Harris) sponsor the law, which takes effect Aug. 1, 2010.
