Larson's Bridge once carried Clearwater Highway 2 across the Mississippi River. The old one-lane steel truss bridge was removed in 1939 after the highway was realigned. They removed the bridge, and much of the dirt that made up the roadbed, leaving only these concrete abutments. They are still standing nearly 70 years later, though one wing is broken and listing badly.

The photo above is a view from the north river bank on a sunny summer day in 2009. The photo below is a view looking upriver (to the west) from the County Highway 2 bridge. The grass is just starting to turn green on this spring day in early 2006.
