Highway 25 BridgeEdit profile
Highway 25 Bridge is a concrete girder bridge that spans the Mississippi River between Monticello, Minnesota and Big Lake, Minnesota. It was built in 1988 by the Minnesota Department of Transportation and was designed by VanDoren Hazard Stallings.
The previous bridge in this location, built in 1930, was a humpback truss bridge with a decorative wrought iron railing. One unique feature about the 1930 bridge was that it had restrooms built into the bridge, underneath the sidewalk in the southwest corner next to the bridge abutment. The restrooms were closed in 1962 when it was determined that they could not easily be connected to the new sewage treatment plant. Replacement restrooms were built in the nearby park.
