WATERTOWN, S.D.–The Watertown City Council received a report this week on the condition of the city’s bridges.

There are 11 of them in the city limits that receive periodic inspections.

Chris Brozik is with Civil Design of Brookings, which conducted the inspections…

Brozik says summer’s inspections found all of the bridges in excellent shape except for one. That’s a bridge on North Lake Drive near Kampeska Lodge, which is showing its age.

It was built in 1931…..

The cost of doing the bridge inspections is split between the state and the city. The state funds 80-percent of the cost, and the city the other 20-percent.
