Bridge Documentation

Information from Ontario Bridge Inventory: Bridge width: 10.4 meters. One approach span at each end, having span length of 15.2 meters.

This bridge is an uncommon example of a multi-span truss bridge. This is also the only truss bridge on highway 28. It has been rehabbed sometime after 2004. Rehabilitation included replacement of the original concrete approach railings and metal railings on the main truss spans. The single sidewalk, originally located on the east side inside the two truss lines, was removed and turned into part of the vehicular lanes, while a cantilevered sidewalk was added to the east side of the bridge.
