Anyone Wanna Buy A 147 Year Old Bridge?!

The Minnesota Department of Transportation is now soliciting offers for the sale of one of the oldest bridges in Minnesota.

MnDOT has announced it's accepting letters of interest until Aug. 31 from city, county, and state agencies that wish to buy the Kern Bridge, which previously crossed the Le Sueur River southwest of Mankato.

Having been built in 1873, the 189-foot single-span bowstring arch bridge is one of the oldest in Minnesota, and is particularly rare as it's made from wrought iron.
