Mill Towns Trail bridge: ready for assembly. Connecting trail: still a problem?

Three trucks delivered the bridge girders for the Mill Towns Trail bridge over the Cannon River this morning. They’ll be put in place next week. (A tip-of-the-blogger hat to John Thomas for alerting me.)

I last blogged photos of the construction in February. In the message thread attached to that post, I linked to the Northfield News editorial which highlighted problems with the portion of the trail that will connect the bridge to 5th St. and Water St.  Have these issues been resolved? (I’ve closed comments here. Continue discussion there.)
