The Arthur Rohwder Memorial Highway Bridge is a continuous steel girder bridge constructed in 1961. It carries State Highway 61 southbound over the Knife River in St. Louis County. The bridge is a component of the State Highway 61 route from Duluth to Two Harbors, which is significant for its association with the Minnesota Highway Department’s efforts to upgrade roads to expressway standards in the 1955-1970 period.
