While the MN-93 bridge is highly functional, there has been no attempt what-so-ever to dress up the bridge. It is about as run of the mill as a modern steel girder bridge can be. One interesting item is a sensor on the west end of the bridge for low clearance. That is interesting because there is no clearance problem on the bridge. It turns out that the sensor is not for the river bridge, but rather, for the Union Pacific railroad bridge over MN-93 on the east end of the river crossing. This railroad bridge is also rather narrow. Rather than building the highway bridge narrow to match, the highway bridge was built the proper width. This makes the bridge ready in the event that the railroad bridge is eventually replaced. In the mean time, a funky little guard rail sits at an angle to the edge of the bridge to protect the corner of the railroad bridge that extends close to the traffic lane.
Le Sueur is famous as the home of the Mayo family. Dr. William Worrall Mayo moved to Le Sueur in the mid 1850s. He established his first medical practice on Main Street. He later moved to Rochester with his two sons, William and Charles, where they established the world famous Mayo Clinic.
The photo above is looking west down the length of the MN-93 bridge. The angled guard rail protects the Union Pacific railroad bridge abutment. The vantage point is from the south end of the railroad bridge on the east bank of the Minnesota River. The photo below is looking southeast towards the downriver north face of the structure. The vantage point is a roadside park and boat landing on the west bank of the river.
