The name of this bridge Schenk Bridge, is believed to be correct, based on a vague reference in a local newspaper article from some time ago. This bridge is a lighter weight design of pony truss bridge, compared to many of the other pony truss bridges in this county. Examples of this lightweight truss design, composed mainly of only paired angles, can be found elsewhere in Ontario, but they are not common in Grey County, although that is not to say they are common anywhere; like all riveted truss bridges, they are a disappearing bridge type that deserves to be preserved not demolished and replaced as many are.
