There was actually bloodymary mix made there during The Redwing company ownership. The bridge was converted to road use by Sverdrup@Parcel when they constructed the wastewater plant. The on site engineer told me that the bridge is now a class 5 bridge when they were done with the project.

A more logical answer indeed. I just thought it would be cooler if it were Tomato juice... perhaps leading to a Bloody Mary bar.

This railroad grade was made into a road for a waste water plant for the former Red Wing Company(Not the shoe company)back in the early 1990s.Now owned by Red Gold. I was the waste water plant operator then. The pipes carry waste water and sludge to the waste water retention ponds.

That's at the Red Gold facility so those pipes might be full of tomato juice... You never know.

I drove right up to it since there weren’t any signs saying not to !

I got on the Red Gold parking area and snapped a few quick pix of this guy before I was told I should vacate, so I suppose you all will forgive the lackluster photos. The work road this is on is almost a path and now carries gas pipes.
