Washington Avenue Bridge
The Washington Avenue Bridge crosses the Mississippi River in Minneapolis, Minnesota and connects the East Bank and West Bank portions of the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus. The bridge is unique for being a double-decker bridge, with the lower portion designated for roadtraffic and the upper level used for pedestrians and bicyclists (lanes specifically for bikes are on the north side). It is a utilitarian structure with simple architecture, but it has cultural significance because thousands of students, faculty, staff and visitors walk across it every day.
I don't know how many times I walked across this bridge while I attended the U. Wonderful in the summer but quite different in the winter months!
