Bridge Documentation

This bridge is the southernmost bridge on the Welland Canal. It is also an outstanding example of the vertical lift bridges that were built as part of the construction of the current 4th Welland Canal. It retains excellent historic integrity, and its location near downtown Port Colborne makes it an iconic centerpiece for the community.
