What’s your favorite rickety old bridge in Duluth? Mine is called “Ass Bridge.” At least, that’s what I call it, for reasons that will become obvious if you read on. It’s an old railroad bridge over Stewart Creek in western Duluth. The northeastern side of the bridge is in the Riverside neighborhood, the southwestern side is in the Smithville neighborhood.
In order to be a really great bridge, a certain amount of danger must be involved in crossing it. Any warnings of that danger, such as orange fencing, must be removed.
A few of the wooden ties are loose on this bridge, but the missing railing is its finest element.
It’s also a good thing for the bridge to be high enough that falling from it guarantees serious injury or death.
Random nails sticking out here and there are a must.
Missing planks and tangled wire also add much to the experience.
It’s also good if a weak attempt has been made to keep people off the bridge, and it ends up being mocked.
