This bridge carries Meadowbrook Road across the Minnehaha Creek in an industrial area of Saint Louis Park north of Excelsior Boulevard and west of Louisiana Avenue. This bridge could be called the Ordinary Bridge. It uses very ordinary concrete channel beams, ordinary steel pilings, ordinary railings, and an ordinary concrete deck. The bridge has no decorative elements at all, making it truly a very ordinary bridge.

The photo above is looking north down the length of the bridge deck from the southbound lane of Meadowbrook Road. The photo below is looking northeast across the bridge deck from the far side of Powell Road, which runs along the south side of the creek.
