History & significance

Bridge 90482 is a single-span, reinforced-concrete, deck girder bridge that carries Nokomis Avenue South over Minnehaha Creek in Minneapolis. Constructed between 1921 and 1922, the bridge is located in the Minnehaha segment of the Grand Rounds. The deck girders, deck slab, abutments, wingwalls, sidewalks, and bridge railings are comprised of cast-in-place reinforced concrete. The fascia girders make up the headwall and they curve downward from the center to create the appearance of an arched bridge.

Bridge 90482 is significant as an example of a reinforced-concrete, deck girder bridge designed to resemble an arch with Classical Revival details. It is also a contributing structure to the Grand Rounds Historic District.
