Norway Ridge Road is another very low traffic Saint Louis River crossing. With an average of 75 vehicles a day, one would not normally have very high expectations for the road. However, it is a well built and well maintained gravel roadway, and the bridge is a nearly new modern prestressed concrete girder bridge with a concrete deck and the new style slanted guardrails. This is the same bridge that would be built for a road that carried 100 times the traffic. The local landowners and sportsmen who use this road are lucky to have such a nice bridge.
The photo above is looking east along the upriver south face of the bridge. The right midday sun resulted in the white concrete on the bridge to be overexposed. Note that the bridge piers are set parallel to the river, but at an angle to the highway. The photo below is a view from 25 feet downriver, also looking at the upriver south side of the bridge from the west river bank.
