Bridge Documentation

Ontario has many rigid-frame bridges but most are designed to a standard plan that provides for similar details in the various design aspects of the bridge including things like railings. The railings on this bridge are anything but standard. They are an unusual combination of concrete posts and wire cable panels. The bridge has two plaques, one for each of the former counties this border bridge is positioned between.

Construction material(s) and Details: This concrete structure shows little deterioration. There are 2 plaques on the concrete balustrade. They both identify the structure as the " Roy Bridge." They also identify the engineers who designed the structure and the date it was built. Integrity: There are signs of some sympathetic patchwork on the abutments and the balustrade. Historical associations: It is believed that this bridge was named after the Roy family. This family has been a prominent landowner in neighbouring Lincoln county for many generations. Notes: This structure did not score well on the heritage evaluation. Its design and lack of historical associations inhibited the structure's heritage value.
Documentation: A written record for the structure was not located.
