Bridge Burns on Mississippi

A railroad bridge between Franklin and Lake Street bridges burned last weekend. WCCO has a report and some video. I believe the misidentify the location as between the Ford and Lake St. bridges.

This bridge is not far from my home and I often pass it on my runs. It is also the bridge that could span the Greenway over the Mississippi. I took some photos of it recently (after illegally walking a short ways out on it).

The bridge was still used by trains. The fire caused enough damage that trains no longer can safely cross. I would bet they may not repair it.
