To be replaced before 2017
This bridge is the first long-span concrete through girder bridge built in MN. Originally, it was supposed to be a pony truss bridge built here, but because of the shortage of steel, the county resorted to concrete to build this bridge. The design eventually became the norm for bridge construction after World War I.
