The MT-41 South bridge over the Beaverhead River in Twin Bridges was reopened on Saturday, according to the Montana Department of Transportation.

MDT said in a press release that repairs were made to the concrete pier wall foundation, bringing the bridge back up to standards that allowed access to resume.

MDT added, "A close knit community, the residents of Twin Bridges partnered with MDT as well to address and solve the problem."

MDT Interim Director Larry Flynn said in the release:

"This project exemplifies how Montanans come together in challenging times. We're grateful to our hard working MDT engineers and maintenance teams that were able to identify the safety issue, fix it, and restore mobility for Twin Bridges and surrounding communities."

MDT said all bridge traffic can resume as normal, and MDT staff will continue to monitor and inspect the bridge.
