Meridian Bridge in Yankton closed Monday morning due to noise

YANKTON, S.D.(WNAX)- The City of Yankton has closed the Meridian Bridge over the Missouri River.

City Manager Amy Leon says the police department got some calls about noises from the bridge.

Leon says the bridge normally makes some noise due to expansion and contraction.


City officials had a chance to inspect the bridge and found no issues. It was reopened Monday morning.

The bridge opened in 1924 and was converted to a walking – biking bridge in 2012.
