Notes
Survey number HAER MN-73
Significance: Crossing the Blue Earth River in southern Blue Earth County, Minnesota, the Dodd Ford Bridge is a steel, pin-connected, nine-panel, overhead, Pratt-truss highway bridge. Constructed in 1901, it is among the state's earliest, remaining examples of the overhead Pratt type. The bridge also is significant for its association with Lawrence Henry Johnson, a prominent Minnesota bridge builder of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The Dodd Ford Bridge is one of only two authenticated, surviving examples of Johnson's work.
