Bridge Documentation

In general short-span steel through arch bridges like this one are an uncommon structure type. British Columbia has a number of examples however. This particular bridge has an unusual details at the floor beams where the hangers connection where a tensioned rod holds what appears to be a supplemental floor beam in place. The bridge has a crown hinge. It was difficult to see the bearing area of the bridge, but there did not appear to be any hinges at the bearings. The bottom chord of the bridge is composed of two simple plates.

Length given for this bridge is an estimate.

Visitors to this bridge may be interested to note there is a small riveted railroad deck truss bridge immediately to the west of the highway and is easy to access. The bridge is not covered on HistoricBridges.org because time restrictions (namely the departure time of the ferry) cut documentation of bridges short!
