Bridge Documentation

This extremely rare example of a low water crossing in Ontario is also unique because it was designed and built by the local Mennonite community. A low water crossing is a type of bridge that is located very close to the water level and is designed to allow water to flow over the deck in times of high water. As such, low water crossings usually do not have railing.

The heritage bridge inventory entry for this bridge appears to report this bridge as being shorter and having fewer spans than it actually has. As such, the length given by HistoricBridges.org is a very rough estimate of length.
