The McGilvray Road Bridges

A Photo Tour Of The Historic
Truss Bridges On McGilvray Road
In The Van Loon Wildlife Area


  McGilvray Road Guide Sign   McGilvray Road passes through the river bottoms of the Black River just north of La Crosse, Wisconsin. The road served the logging industry and immigrant farmers for nearly a century, then sat abandoned for 50 years. The road and its historic bridges were restored in the mid-1990s by area residents who worked as a community to save a nearly forgotten part of their local history. This photo tour is a look at these historic bridges 15 years after their restoration.
