Bridge No 5827 is a bridge in Zumbro Falls, Minnesota which has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is listed in the National Register under "Iron and Steel Bridges in Minnesota, 1873-1945". The bridge is on Highway 60, .1 miles east of the U.S. Highway 63 intersection. This bridge was built by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in 1938 for an approximate cost of $2000. This bridge is an example of New Deal, labor intensive work projects which promoted highway beautification and highlighted local craftsman skills and workmanship. The bridge is built on an Armco Culvert Manufacturers Association galvanized, corrugated-iron structure. Excellent masonry work covers the structure to result in a stoned-faced, multi-plate arch style bridge.
