View A Cultural Resources Report For This Heritage Bridge

This bridge is a rare surviving example of a concrete rigid-frame overpass in Ontario that is two spans. The bridge is configured in a t-beam style, with individual beams discernable under the bridge, rather than a uniform concrete slab as found on some rigid-frame bridges. This bridge is the longest of its type in this region of Ontario. Although all of Ontario's beautiful rigid-frame overpasses are decreasing in population as they are demolished and replaced, the single-span examples are more common that the two-span examples. The two-span examples are about to become even more rarer, thanks to a project to extend Kings Highway 401 to the Detroit River in preparation for a new international cable-stayed bridge. This project will include demolishing this beautiful overpass. The KH-3 bridge is significant as a relatively early surviving rigid-frame overpass, and it also is unaltered including original railings in place on the bridge.
