Meridian Bridge at Yankton reopened after concerns over strange noises

The City of Yankton closed the Meridian Bridge over the Missouri River Sunday evening.

City Manager Amy Leon says the police department got some calls about the bridge making strange, loud noises.

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

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

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