There were a total of four railroad bridges built across the Mississippi River in Bemidji. The river cuts across a small isthmus of land that connects east and west Bemidji, and separates Lake Irving from Lake Bemidji. The bridges built by the Minneapolis, Red Lake, and Manitoba and the Minnesota and International have both been removed. The Soo Line bridge, now owned by the Canadian Pacific, is currently being used as a hiking trail.
The photo above is a view of the side of the BNSF bridge as seen from the shore of the river near Lake Irving. The Soo Line, Nymore, and Highway 197 bridges are visible in the background behind the railroad bridge. The photo below is a view looking northeast down the length of the bridge. The Bemidji railroad depot is located on the far side of the river.
