Some might have called it quaint but now you call it gone as a 1922 railroad bridge over Scenic Highway 61 was taken down last week just south of Knife River.

The bridge, known for its narrow space between abutments and various graffiti over the years, will be replaced this spring. It means a detour on 61 will be in place at least through December and again when bridge and road construction begins in the spring.
