Bridge Documentation

This bridge is a beautiful bridge in an equally beautiful setting, with natural forest around the bridge and a scenic, rocky section of the river. This bridge was closed to traffic in 2018 due to problems with the bearings and it is reasonable to consider the bridge to be at risk for eventual demolition. It would be nice to see the bridge preserved in place for pedestrian use.

A 1930 construction date was given for this by the township. It is not known if this is accurate. Most dated examples of this bridge type in Ontario date to the 1910s.
