Rondo Bridge: Reuniting and Supporting a Community

     By Bob Filipczak 

Completing a bridge creates a sense of satisfaction on a lot of levels, but it’s rare when a bridge structure is actually designed to heal a community. Sure, bridges connect people and can create opportunities for connections that might not otherwise have happened. But those are usually side effects of the primary purpose of bridge: to connect roads and facilitate traffic flow.

We are about to find out.


History & Heritage Committee

Committee chair, Melanie Fiegen, moved to South Dakota at the end of the year. If anyone is interested in chairing this committee, please contact Lisa Breu at

The committee’s mission is to understand and communicate to the section our civil engineering heritage and history. Past activities have been articles for the newsletter, preparation of ASCE Historic Landmark designation applications, and calendars highlighting Minnesota Historic Projects.

Here are links to a couple documents: The Centennial Timeline and Centennial Booklet.
