Apparently they also removed one farther south.

Here is an interesting web page with dates, bridge numbers, and modern pictures:

Noticed something looking at google maps.If you follow the roadway there is what looks like a pier in the Zumbro River for a bridge.Looks like they removed 2 bridges,not 1.Also i noticed this roadway hooks up with what i think is a rte. 30.Just a couple of observations.

According to the internet, the bridge lasted into the late 90s.

Does anyone have any info on when this was removed, or any pics from when it was operation? Thanks.
