The Akeley railroad trestle, built in 1927, according to Department of Natural Resources records, will be replaced with a modern, metal bridge this fall.

The Akeley Council learned of the plans to replace the 314-foot structure this week. Engineers have determined the current bridge is capable of holding 1,500 pounds. The new 10-foot-wide bridge will carry 10,000 pounds, accommodating a snowmobile trail groomer.
