*Original St. Paul High Bridge – circa 1890 – Crosses the Mississippi River
The current bridge was built and opened in 1987 at a cost of $20 million. The ornamental ironwork on the new bridge was built using iron from the old bridge.
The High Bridge has a height of 160 feet, making it the highest bridge in St. Paul.
