The CSAH-39 bridge is located just east of where the Mississippi River exits Cass Lake and falls over the Knutson Dam. This is an early prestressed precast concrete girder bridge. Like many bridges from that area, the railings are substandard. They would likely not stand up to an automobile impact, they are not angled so they would not deflect an impact, and the curb is not high enough to stop a car. Otherwise, this 48 year old bridge appears like it will stand for many years in the future.
