HistoricBridges.org Extended Canadian Coverage

Canada has a wealth of beautiful bridges with heritage value, however due to the lack of a national bridge inventory in the country, as well as limited coverage from other bridge-related websites, these treasures are largely unknown to the world. Unfortunately, much of the large country of Canada is beyond the HistoricBridges.org team's current area of coverage as dictated by limitations in time and funding. As such, this bridge has not yet been photo-documented/inspected by any members of the HistoricBridges.org team.  Because of all these facts, in particular the importance of raising awareness of heritage bridges in Canada, HistoricBridges.org has chosen to include a number of Canadian bridges with photos acquired from helpful website contributors, and/or by creating a Public Photograph Compilation. Photos available for Canadian bridges offered through these methods may offer an incomplete photo-documentation, lacking sufficient overview and/or detail photos, however it is hoped that the photos and narratives offered will still be of benefit.

About This Bridge

This bridge is a rather long highway wooden stringer bridge that was apparently built in the early 1900s. Its visual form is that of a bridge which slowly rises in height to the center of the bridge to allow sufficient clearance for any boats that may traverse the river. The bridge is situated on a complex system of wooden bents that support short wooden spans. This pattern is broken only at the center where a longer channel span is present. Despite its length, the bridge is a narrow one-lane bridge. There are wider pull-off sections on the bridge where traffic can pull over and wait for oncoming traffic to pass. The deck is concrete and capable of handling fully loaded logging trucks. The other primary function of the bridge is to provide access to a residential area on the north side of the river.
