This bridge used to be a non-historic 1979 concrete bridge which has deteriorated and needed to be replaced. In a wonderful preservation solution, a historic truss bridge on the busier County Highway 8 over Hennepin Canal will be replaced, with the historic truss span being moved to this location and rehabilitated.
