St. Anthony Parkway Railroad Bridge
Photo taken by Matthew Lohry
This bridge is a rather ornate example of 1920's concrete slab construction. This bridge features diamond stamps on either side of each span, and the mid-span support columns are pedestal-style columns that are quite beautiful to look at. Three of these columns support the structure at midspan, and a smooth arch transition from the bottom of the superstructure to the abutments exists at either end. The bridge is a busy one, carrying several trains per day. There were apparently two railroad lines at one time on this bridge, but now only one rail line exists. The bridge appears to be in OK shape, but is exhibiting some spalling on either side of the main spans. The railings are pipe railings, which are most likely original.
