The Holmes Street Bridge is a historic deck truss bridge with classical revival detailing built in 1927 to carry what was then US 169 across the river at Shakopee. After a new bridge was built in the 1980s it was used as a pedestrian structure. It was restored in 2011, and in 2015 connected to the trail network on the north side of the river when the highway bridge to the north was rebuilt as part of a flood mitigation effort.
