Dakota, Minnesota and Eastern Railroad faced a costly rehabilitation and rebuild issue in a section of their tracks. The Railroad had an existing steel bridge, approximately 20 feet in length, and existing concrete back walls. They wanted to eliminate the steel bridge entirely because the concrete back walls needed replacement and the steel bridge were showing signs of deterioration. If they removed the bridge, they needed to provide a means for adequate water flow for drainage.
