• Location: River Mile 1272.5
• River Elevation: 1,305 Feet
• County: Beltrami
• Highway: Beltrami County Highway 8
• Daily Traffic Count: 1,800 (2003)
• Bridge Type: Concrete Girder
• Bridge Length: 221 Feet, 72 Foot Longest Span
• Bridge Width: 44 Feet, 2 Lanes

This bridge is the first of 3 consecutive nondescript prestressed concrete girder bridges. Two of those bridges are on CSAH 8, this being the westernmost of the two, plus another over CSAH 33. CSAH stands for County State-Aid Highway. These are roads that are major county roads, but not up to par with state highways, but certainly better than minor county roads.

This bridge replaced a 2-span steel pony truss bridge built in 1931. A pony truss bridge has a steel truss that runs along the sides of the roadway, but does not go over the top of the road.

The photo above is a view from the southwest corner of the bridge looking to the east. The photo above is a view looking east down the length of the bridge deck.
