Fort Snelling Bridge (3rd)
Posted October 26, 2016, by Joe Fishbein (jmfmando [at] gmail [dot] com)

This bridge recently underwent a 2-year rehab which included a new deck, replacement of severely corroded floorbeams over Pier 3 (due to many years of leakage through the deck joint), new bearings and a complete repaint. It is now brown in color and looks very nice.
