Bridge Documentation

This is a rare documented example of a bridge built by the Toronto plant of the Dominion Bridge Company. The plaque itself is interesting. The plaque has only 192 printed on it for a date, and is missing the last digit. It would appear whoever cast the plaque forgot to put the final year digit into the mold. The given construction date comes from the asset management plan for the Township of Nipissing.

Bridge lengths given are estimates.
