The Zumbro Parkway Bridge is a historic arch bridge with two 25-foot (7.6 m) spans over a tributary of the Zumbro River in Hyde Park Township, Minnesota, United States, just outside the city of Zumbro Falls. It was constructed in 1937 by the Works Progress Administration using a modular corrugated iron product known as Multi Plate, and given a masonry veneer with Gothic Revival details. The bridge was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989 for having state-level significance in the theme of engineering.[2] It was nominated for being one of Minnesota's finest examples of a stone-faced Multi Plate arch highway bridge, a style used in many of the state's New Deal bridge projects.[3]
