MnDOT Bridge 5370
Bridge No. 5370 (MHPR RC-FAC-696) was historically significant as a virtually unaltered example of a monumental, reinforced-concrete, continuous-rib-arch bridge in Minnesota utilizing Art Deco/Classical Revival architectural design. The structure was designed by Sverdrup & Parcel, Consulting Engineers of St. Louis, Missouri and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) under Criterion C for its engineering design, within the historic context of Reinforced-Concrete Highway Bridges in Minnesota, 1900-1945. ARCH3, LLC prepared the MnDOT Bridge 5370 Historic Bridge Management Plan and performed documentation to Level I of the Minnesota Historic Property Record (MHPR) prior to extensive alterations to the bridge’s deck.
