Maxwell's Slough Bridge
Posted January 30, 2017, by Robert Elder (robertelder1 [at] gmail [dot] com)

I just added a link to the KHRI page. KSHS visited this bridge in 2016 and the KHRI page contains recent photographs.

NOTE: The City of St. Paul may control access to this bridge. If you are hoping to visit, you may want to contact the city before making a long drive out of your way.

Also, there is a large pin connected Parker truss immediately south of this bridge, which may also be under the same controlled access.
