Summary of Historic Significance
The Zumbro Parkway Bridge is an unaltered, stone-faced, double-arch, Multi-Plate highway bridge that carries Co. Rd. 68 over a tributary of the Zumbro River. The bridge contains two identical arches of 25-foot span. The Zumbro Parkway Bridge is historically significant as an excellent example of a stone-faced, Multi-Plate, arch highway bridge. Multi-Plate is a type of decorative modular construction often employed on New Deal, work-relief, bridge projects. The Zumbro Parkway Bridge is one of the finest examples of its type in the state. The bridge has not been significantly altered since its completion in 1937.
