State-owned bridges

MnDOT has committed to preserving select bridges owned by the state. In addition to federal and state preservation laws that require full consideration of preservation, MnDOT has gone beyond these laws to commit to the public that these iconic structures will receive a higher level of maintenance and more rehabilitation work to ensure they remain in use and continue to serve the public for as long as possible.


Three of the bridges below have been or will soon be transferred to other agencies. After rehabilitation is completed, Bridges 5721 and 5388 will be relocated and transferred to the DNR for use as a pedestrian/bicycle/equestrian trail. Bridge 5721 has been placed on the Gateway Trail over Manning Avenue in Washington County, and Bridge 5388 will serve as the entrance to the Lake Louise State Park in Mower County. Bridge 4175 (currently being rehabilitated) will be transferred to Scott County for continued use as a pedestrian facility.
