History & significance

Constructed in 1937 and located in a residential neighborhood in the Fond du Lac area of Duluth, Bridge 5757 carries State Highway 23 over Mission Creek. It is a two-span, multi-plate arch with concrete headwalls, railings, and retaining walls encased in a fieldstone veneer. The masonry veneer displays Late Gothic Revival detailing; buttressed pilasters frame the multi-plate openings and small pointed arches punctuate the railings. Bridge 5757 is significant as an example of a multi-plate arch with well-crafted masonry and Late Gothic Revival detailing.
