Notes
  • Connects University of Minnesota campus to Dinkytown neighborhood.
  • Closed March 2008 for fear some heavily rusted plates could fail. Restored and reopened by early 2009, possibly sooner.
  • Moved from 1949 (footbridge) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA. The bridge was moved to its current location from the Bierman Field area of the same campus.
