This bridge is actually two bridges side by side, one dating to 1900 and the other dating to 1949. The historic Low Level Bridge (also known as the Edmonton Bridge) over the North Saskatchewan River in Edmonton, Alberta is actually two bridges side by side. The first bridge was constructed 1899-1900 by the Dominion Bridge Company. The Low Level Bridge was designed for the Edmonton, Yukon and Pacific Railway. In addition to this railway track, it carried an Edmonton Radial Railway streetcar track. A timber deck was later added to allow vehicular traffic. The bridge continued to carry both railroad and vehicular traffic until around 1950. A second parallel bridge was added in 1949 (left bridge in the above photo), and was also built by the Dominion Bridge Company and to very similar design details as the original bridge. A major rehabilitation project was completed in 2006. The bridge is listed on the Edmonton Inventory of Historic Resources and was designated as a Municipal Historic Resource.
