Bridge Documentation

Ontario has a huge number of concrete rigid-frame bridges, this type having been built from the 1930s onward for many decades. However, steel rigid-frame bridges, meaning rigid-frame bridges that feature exposed steel that is not encased within concrete, are quite rare. This is what makes this steel rigid-frame bridge noteworthy. The main span superstructure is exposed riveted girders. The abutments (and the portion of the steel located in these areas) are concrete however. This bridge was under rehabilitation when visited in 2015. It is good to see this rare bridge type being preserved. The original railings were replaced during this project. The original railings were not the more common steel ornamental railings of the period, but instead were another standard design: an open concrete parapet design. The King's Highway website has photos prior to rehab.
