Mendota Road Bridge (Bridge 90401)
History & significance
Bridge 90401 is a single-span, filled-spandrel, mortared limestone arch bridge constructed in 1894. It carried a roadway from its time of construction until 2015 and now carries a pedestrian trail/ path over an outlet of Pickerel Lake in Saint Paul. The abutments, wingwalls, and spandrel walls are comprised of mortared gray limestone. The railing is also mortared limestone blocks and has concrete trim. Bridge 90401 is significant as a rare example of a small-scale, nineteenth-century, stone-arch highway bridge.
