This bridge is newly opened in 2007. In fact, traffic barrels are still present on the deck when these photo were taken. It spans the Mississippi River Flood Diversion Channel, the western most of two such bridges. The bridge carries mostly farm traffic, so it doesn't have to be as strongly built as a mainline highway bridge. This structure replaced bridge #01501, which was rated as structurally deficient.

The photo above is a view from the south bank of the channel located to the west of the structure. The photo below is the bridge plate.

The photo above is a view looking north down the length of the traffic deck. The orange barrels remain from the project to add the final lift of pavement to the approaches. The photo below is a view from near the southwest corner of the structure.
