Description 

In its place is a pony truss pedestrian bridge which carries a pipeline across the river. Until its removal in 2004, this bridge and the Hwy. 19 and 67 Bridge existed side-by-side. However, structural deterioration resulted in the bridge being fenced off since the 1980s and its eventual removal in 2004. More information under the MN 19&67 Bridge.

Also worth noting is a deck Fink truss bridge that existed prior to 1913.
