Douglas Trail Bridge
Posted November 3, 2013, by John Marvig (johnmarvig [at] chaska [dot] net)

One of these spans ended up on the trail bridge just west of Oronoco. That bridge was rehabilitated this summer, and a fourth span was added with a faux cut stone pier and abutment, which doesn't look too terrible.
