This bridge, based on its railing design, appears to be an early example of a concrete rigid-frame bridge in Ontario. Rigid-frame bridges were unusually and immensely popular in Ontario from the 1930s through at least the 1960s. This example does not have the ornamental metal railing panels common on this bridge type, and instead has a concrete balustrade that is usually found on only the earlier examples, perhaps from the early 1930s. Google Street View showed a shield-shaped bronze plaque mounted on the railing of this bridge, but it was missing when HistoricBridges.org visited the bridge. Aside from the loss of the plaque, the historic integrity of the bridge is good, although the original railings are spalling. Few bridges survive today with this earlier railing design.
