A brief history of the Canadian National Superior Subdivision:


This simple I-Beam and Trestle bridge crosses Arcola Trail, near the massive Soo Line High Bridge Built in 1936, the bridge is very simply composed. It has a single I-Beam span, along with trestle approach at either end. All substructures are made of wood.
The bridge appears to be in fair condition. The author has ranked this bridge as being locally significant, due to the common design.
