Soo Line (Arcola) High 1911 Bridge over St. Croix north of Stillwater, MN

(Bridge Hunter; Historic Bridges; John A. Weeks; Satellite, 44 photos)

The "wwMiss" label is approximate. This bridge is actually over the St. Croix River.

One of my favorite bridges, I was finally able to capture shots of a train crossing it in September of last year.

This is the Arcola High Bridge between Arcola MN and Somerset, WI used by CN (x-Soo). spanning the St. Croix River. The St Croix river was a major logging river back in the late 1800's.
Jordan Palmer Hey that's one of my photos of the old Soo Line/Arcola Bridge haha! Where'd you find it?

Stone footings from the original crossing about 1/2 mile south of the Highbridge. The original bridge was removed in early 1916.
