St. Croix River Bridge (MnDOT bridge 6347)
Posted April 9, 2014, by Joe Fishbein (jmf [at] visi [dot] com)

This bridge underwent a rehab project in 2010. Work included reinforcement and repair of some deficient gusset plates, an epoxy chipseal deck overlay, new strip-seal expansion joints, new deck drains, spot painting and a steel tube rail added to the existing concrete parapet rail.
