The Bridges of Lake Minnetonka

Lake Minnetonka is unique not only for its many bays but also for its many bridges. In fact, there are 20 bridges scattered across Lake Minnetonka’s 14,500 acres. All of them may stand at different lengths, widths, and clearances but all share one thing in common: they connect. Whether you are driving down Shoreline Drive across Arcola Bridge towards Wayzata or driving down Shadywood Road across Narrows Bridge toward Excelsior, these bridges connect us all to our destinations. But best of all, they connect all 14 cities that surround this beautiful lake.

The table below displays the approximate clearance, length, and width measurements of each bridge found on Lake Minnetonka. Note: vertical clearance measurements are based on the normal lake level elevation of 929.4 feet. Channel depths and slops may vary.
