Also known as:
- Dodd Ford Bridge
- The Dodd Ford Bridge is a bridge spanning the Blue Earth River about one mile southwest of Amboy, Minnesota in Blue Earth County, Minnesota.
The bridge is a steel, pin-connected, nine-panel, overhead, Pratt-truss highway bridge. Constructed in 1901, it is among the state's earliest remaining examples of the overhead Pratt type. The bridge also is significant for its association with Lawrence Henry Johnson, a prominent Minnesota bridge builder of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. This bridge is one of only two authenticated surviving examples of Johnson's work. (read more...)
