There are 18 bridges over channels on Lake Minnetonka. The following list gives the vertical clearance under bridges (the lowest bridge is used if there is more than one over the channel) to the normal lake elevation 929.4 ft.
This information is important, especially for watercraft with flying bridges or masts.
Add (or subtract) the variation from normal, found on the Minnetonka Home Page to determine the current clearance.
CAUTION: Temporary cables, wires, ropes and changes in lake elevation may reduce vertical clearance to something less than that listed.
