Martin Sigvart Grytbak
Martin Sigvart Grytbak (c. 1883 – 24 June 1953) was one of four innovative and influential Norwegian-American engineers that were involved in the design of the great bridges of the Twin Cities. The others are Kristoffer Olsen Oustad, Andreas W. Munster and Frederick William Cappelen.
Grytbak graduated as a civil engineer in 1903 at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (Norges Teknisk-Naturvitenskapelige Universitet) in Trondhjem. Grytbak came to the United States about 1903 and worked as a bridge engineer for the Northern Pacific Railway in Saint Paul. From 1913 until after World War II he served as bridge engineer for the city of Saint Paul. Grytbak's major works are the Intercity Bridge (Ford Parkway Bridge) between Saint Paul and Minneapolis, and the Kellogg Boulevard Viaduct in St. Paul.
