The Hanover City Council heard of a potential bridge wood re-purposing project where old boards could be reused into a new bandshell.

The council also heard an update regarding a funding shortfall for the Hennepin County Rd. 19 trail project, and heard from its state representative with a legislative update.


City councilor Jim Zajicek updated the council about a park board discussion regarding using wood from the Historic Bridge to make a new bandshell, a long sought-after city project.

With that much wood there would be enough for two gazebos, but well have to wait. This is all preliminary, Zajicek said.

He said because the old wood was treated, the pollution control agency has requirements on documenting where the wood goes.

It was clarified that the wood is Douglas fir.

(The wood) should be beautiful, Zajicek said.

The historic bridge repair project is scheduled for this summer. Zajicek said all of the more than 200 boards on the bridge would be replaced.
