Where on Lake Louise would this bridge be installed? Below the dam where they took out the old bridge, or upstream from the lake where there is already a very old bridge?
Bridge #5388 is scheduled for removal in 2009. Currebt Plans are that Bridge #5388 will be moved by the MN DNR to Lake Louise State Park in Mower Co, MN near Austin , MN.
RE: Removal of Bridge #5388 over the North Fork of the Crow River in Meeker Co., MN - scheduled removal -2009
Despite the fact that the bridge is listed on the National Registry, a HAER report has not been done at this point. A HAER report has been requested by the local historical society.
Bridge #5388 is the longest one of its type - 105 ft long -a Warren Pony Truss with Polygonal top chords - built in 1935 as a WPA Project over the North Fork of the Crow River in Meeker Co, MN.
Although there were at least two probable relocation sites in Meeker Co, they were not considered.
The design of the replacement bridge has not been released.
