Although very little material from the original bridge remains, this bridge still replicates the appearance of the oldest bridge in Ottawa. The bridge as seen today has new stone for the arches, because the original stone was of a particular type of stone that did not weather very well and was subject to cracking during freeze-thaw cycles. The bridge as rebuilt is narrower than the original bridge, but maintains the overall appearance of the original bridge. The low HSR rating assigned by HistoricBridges.org reflects the fact that it is essentially not the original bridge. However it still retains important interpretive value due to its visual similarities with the original bridge.
