This is a rare example of a railway swing bridge that also includes cantilevered highway decks on each side. The highway decks were closed to traffic after it was damaged in 2013, and after CNR lost in court, they reopened again in November 2019. The Kaministiquia River Swing Bridge is listed on the Ontario Heritage Bridge List.
