Bridge Documentation

This tiny bridge is a rare surviving example of a stone arch highway bridge in Ontario, and it has been rehabilitated. The bridge dates to the early 1870s. The stone arch superstructure itself appears to retain integrity, however there are some alterations to note. The abutments have been replaced with concrete using stone-shaped formliners. The formliners do not replicate the appearance of the original abutments. The original abutments were unusual in that they differed in design from the arch itself. Unlike the arch, the original abutments were an unusual dry-laid stone design. Under the bridge, concrete has also been added under the arch barrel at the abutment face. This concrete was also poured into stone-shaped formliners, but using a different style formliner. Despite alteration, the bridge remains a highly significant and rare heritage bridge type in Ontario, and its rehabilitation is a rare example of a preservation commitment to the bridge in Ontario.
