Technically, this is two bridges separated by a tiny island. This unusual arrangement makes this a distinctive looking bridge. Lengths given are estimates and the total length includes the road over the island. The builder plaque is stolen but the scar left behind on the end post takes the shape of plaques by the Canadian Bridge Company. Remains of a very early concrete abutment dating to 1905 per markings on it are present next to this bridge, thus is seems likely this bridge replaced a ca. 1905 bridge.
