Bridge Documentation

Additional information: This bridge was built for $23,000.00 CAD

Concrete through arches, often called "rainbow arch" bridges are rare in Canada and throughout North America, but are particularly rare in Québec, especially compared to the neighboring province of Ontario which has  a higher than average surviving population. As such, this bridge stands out as extremely significant. It is additionally significant for its long span which as a result required overhead bracing... even more rare among rainbow arch bridges.

This bridge was reported to have been closed to traffic in September 2011 following a bridge inspection which revealed deterioration of the bridge. Fortunately, a revisit to the bridge in 2019 revealed that the bridge has been rehabilitated and reopened to traffic.
