Heritage Bridges of Ontario

 Overview

Historic bridges are known as "heritage bridges" in Ontario. Southern Ontario is a major coverage area for HistoricBridges.org. Ontario has a substantial number of steel truss bridges, but pin connected truss bridges are few in number. Most southern Ontario truss bridges date from the 1910s on. There are many of the Welland Canal's movable bridges featured (visit this site to see when they are in operation), which is in Niagara Region. Ontario is also noted for its beautiful concrete bowstring "rainbow" arch bridges. Ontario also has a very large number of concrete rigid-frame bridges. There has been a marked increased in the number of heritage bridge demolition plans since 2008.
