If you’re unable to walk to the Tom Rukavina Memorial Bridge, a shorter walk to Bridge View Park is one way to see the amazing structure as it crosses Rouchleau Mine Pit in Virginia. Less than one mile from the Mesabi Trail Head at the east end of Chestnut Street, the park offers interpretive information about the building of the bridge, a raised elevation from which to view the bridge, and several benches.

Bridge View Park is the future home of a permanent memorial to longtime Iron Range lawmaker and booster Tom Rukavina.
