Historical Monuments in Minneapolis
Irene Hixon Whitney Bridge
Great for walking, biking running or just standing stock still the Irene Hixon Whitney Bridge connects two of Minneapolis's highlight green spaces- the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden and Loring Park. Built in 1988 to honor its namesake- Irene Hixon Whitney. The bridge spans 16 lanes of traffic- including the interstate! The overlapping beams on either end of the bridge are metaphors for shaking hands between the two areas of the city (divided by the interstate and traffic). Because of its unique design and colors it also happens to be a favorite location for local photographers to capture images of street scenes, as well as views of the Sculpture Garden and Basilica. There are ramps and stairs on either end of the bridge, so access is easy (although the stairs are a slightly odd height/shape so watch your step as you climb!)
