The new slab is degrading as it is, but they removed a lot of trees from each side of the river and in doing so raped the scenic view even further. Truly disgraceful.

A disgrace to the folks buried near. A plain vanilla bridge where extrodinary scenery abounds.

This beautiful and one-of-a-kind historic structure was thougtlessly and senselessly obliterated from the face of the earth forever in 2009 by ruthless Koochiching County and their ridiculous bridge replacement plan. Worse, the replacement bridge has got to be the ugliest slab of steel and concrete that the civil engineering world has ever concocted.
