Bridge Documentation

Most of Ontario's rigid-frame bridges feature a solid, one-piece superstructure under the deck like a concrete slab's superstructure. However, some of them feature a ribbed design, meaning there are separate beams, more like a t-beam bridge. This is an example of the latter, with individual beams visible.

The unusual granite plaque on the bridge declares the name of the bridge the Tobin Bridge. This is a fairly large example of the rigid-frame design, when compared to other rigid-frame structures found in the region. It retains original standard plan decorative railings and has good historic integrity.
