Broadway Bridge is a Pennsylvania through truss reinforced-concrete highway bridge which carries Minnesota 99 over the Minnesota River in St. Peter, Minnesota, United States.[2] It was built in 1931 by the Minneapolis Bridge Company following a skewed steel design by the Minnesota Highway Department.[3]

For much of 2017, the Minnesota Department of Transportation closed the bridge for a major rehabilitation which included enclosing it in plastic for the removal of lead paint.[4][5] The project, which cost about $4.4 million, preserved the bridge, which had been in poor condition, and restored its original dark green color.[6]
