This bridge is proof that MN-DOT had building prestressed concrete girder bridges down to a science by the mid-1980s. This is a beautiful example of such a routine bridge. The river in this area has low banks, so the bridge replacement project included building up the road a few feet to prevent it from flooding. This 1984 bridge replaced a 1923 era steel truss that was built on a slightly different highway alignment. That bridge was built high enough to allow a steamship to pass under it. Another example of bridge built in that manner is the Soo Line Bridge in Palisade.
The photo above is looking south along the west face of the bridge. Note the brown water color. The photo below is looking north down the length of the traffic deck.
