The County 10 - County 2 bridge is a very typical steel girder bridge with a concrete deck and the older style guardrails. The distinguishing features of this bridge are the baby blue color of the girders and the solid rectangular piers. This bridge is one of several similar bridges in rural Renville County that crosses the Minnesota River using county roads. The common theme is that these bridges were all built about the same time, they are all about the same dimensions, and they are all in good shape today.

This bridge is located at the eastern edge of the Lower Sioux Agency State Park. This state park was set aside to preserve the location of the support center for the Dakota when they were moved to reservations, and to preserve the location of the Dakota uprising in 1862.

The photo above is looking north down the length of the bridge deck towards Renville County from the center of Yellow Medicine County highway 21. The photo below is a view looking north across the Minnesota River along the upriver west face of the bridge.
