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

This bridge was rehabilitated recently. The bridge recieved a new span from the Pine Island bridge that was removed, supported by a Faux cut stone pier. The other piers and abutments were rehabilitated.
