Anoka-Champlin Mississippi River BridgeEdit profile
The Anoka-Champlin Mississippi River Bridge, also known as the Ferry Street Bridge, is a 10-span open spandrel concrete deck arch bridge that spans the Mississippi River between Champlin, Minnesota and Anoka, Minnesota. The bridge is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was built in 1929 by the Minnesota Bridge Company.
The bridge had deteriorated to the point where it needed to be renovated in 1991. A temporary bridge was built alongside the current bridge, and the Anoka-Champlin bridge was torn down to the piers and arches. A new, wider deck and support system was built. In order to keep its historic status, the ornamental concrete railing and other parts were duplicated from the old form. The bridge was reopened in 1998, and the temporary bridge was removed.
