Eau Claire River Bridge


Oblique View Of Bridge, Looking Northwest

There is a wonderful sandy beach beneath the south approach span of this bridge. It is a popular recreational area.

In the mid 1980s, the State of Wisconsin DOT must have gotten a deal on blue paint, since almost every truss bridge in Wisconsin is painted this shade of blue.
