Bridge Documentation

This bridge was constructed 1911-12. It was one of North America's first reinforced concrete open-spandrel arch bridges. The bridge was widened in 1963. It is incredibility difficult to tell which side of the structure was the 1963 addition. Black Bay Bridge was added to the City of Thunder Bay Heritage Register in 1989. It was recognized for its heritage value (City of Thunder Bay By-Law No. 1989 - 263) and received Heritage Designation under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act. The bridge has also been listed on the Ontario Heritage Bridge List.
