This bridge once carried Market Street onto Isle La Plume from the Wisconsin mainland at La Crosse. The Market Street bridge was closed in the early 1980s and this pedestrian bridge and bicycle path bridge was built using the abutments and piers of the former road bridge. I have not yet learned when the original bridge was built, or when the pedestrian bridge conversion was completed. The bridge deck is just wide enough for a car to cross the Isle La Plume Slough, so the city installed the orange posts to keep vehicles off the bridge. The Market Street bridge had a wooden deck that was covered with blacktop in its latter years. There were raised wooden sidewalks on each side of the roadway with wooden rails. The pipe on the current bridge carries waste water from the City Brewery to the wastewater treatment plant.

Note—thanks goes to Matt Carlson of carlsonphotos.net for filling in the details on this bridge.
