Bridge Documentation

John Marvig provided the following breakdown on the history of this bridge: Built 1909-10 for St. Paul Bridge & Terminal Railway, the east approach was added 1924-5, the swing span was replaced in 1956. American Bridge did the 1910 construction, Wisconsin Bridge and Iron Company did the eight deck plate girders in 1924, and the builder of the 1956 swing span is unknown.

This bridge has a 1910 construction date listed. That date applies to the attractive and historic pin-connected through truss approach span. However, this bridge's main swing span has been demolished and replaced by a structure that lacks historic significance. This page has been created on HistoricBridges.org mainly to note the approach span. It is a traditionally composed example of a pin-connected railroad truss bridge and it appears to retain good historic integrity.
