The other half belongs to Canada. The steel bridge was built in 1960 and is being replaced.

The Star Tribune says the free half-bridge has a catch. Anyone who wants it will have to haul it away and agree to a list of conditions, including approval by transportation officials on how the structure will be reused.

The half-bridge has three spans totaling about 624 feet in length.
