This is a rare 19th century rivet-connected Double-Warren deck truss bridge. Built in 1897 by the Hamilton Bridge Company of Hamilton Ontario. The bridge abutments were built in 1896 of stone blocks. These abutments are over 6 feet tall. This bridge is a single span double intersection warren deck truss which carries the K&P Rail Trail (Former Canadian Pacific Kingston Subdivision) across the north branch of the Madawaska River in the Village of Calabogie, Township of Greater Madawaska, Renfrew County, Ontario. Rail line was abandoned in 1977 and since railings and a walking deck have been added and the ties have been removed. Other then that the bridge looks rather original.
