St. Anthony Parkway Bridge (1958) Minneapolis, Minnesota

The St. Anthony Parkway Bridge is a riveted Warren through truss bridge (HAER MN-122) built in 1925. The bridge has several monikers, including the Northtown Bridge, MnDOT Bridge 90664, and Minneapolis Bridge 9791. Erected by the Northern Pacific Railroad, the bridge carries vehicular and pedestrian traffic over the Northtown Yard of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad (BNSF).

The bridge is eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) under Criterion C for its engineering significance as a rare Warren through truss type. It is also a contributing element of the Minneapolis Grand Rounds Scenic Byway System. The public can view the dismantling of the structure via live webcam.

Large format photographic documentation of the bridge to Level I of the Historic American Engineering Record (HAER) was performed for Gemini Research.
