Bridge Documentation

This bridge no longer exists!

Bridge Status: These bridges were demolished and replaced in 2018.

Information from Ontario Bridge Inventory: This bridge was rehabilitated in 1989 (major rehabilitation) and again in 2013 (minor rehabilitation). Bridge width: 12.2 meters (40 feet). It is worth noting that the replacement of the north span, which carried only pedestrian traffic, was downright stupid. To demolish a heritage bridge that was capable of carrying highway traffic with an ugly boring pedestrian bridge simply is a poor choice and a waste of heritage. The heritage bridge should have been preserved for pedestrian use.

This is an unusual situation where two identical truss bridges were built side by side. This is because this road was originally King's Highway 2, which was originally a divided highway and a busy route. In later years, when King's Highway 401 became the dominant highway in the area, this road became less important and was reduced to a two-lane road, rendering the northern bridge pointless. As such, the bridge was closed. More recently, the bridge has found reuse as part of a non-motorized trail system that parallels the highway in this area. The highway bridge has been repainted more recently than the northern (trail) bridge. The bridges follow a provincial standard plan design and both retain good historic integrity with no major alterations.
