Bridge Status: This heritage bridge was demolished and replaced 2013-2015

This bridge is an example of a standard plan arch bridge in Québec. It is assumed to be a standard plan because other examples with the same design details including design of built-up beams, ornamental sidewalk railings, and general arch design can be found elsewhere in the province. Despite being a standard plan, the number of surviving examples of this design appears to be small, so the design remains uncommon. Through steel arches are an uncommon bridge type anywhere, even outside of Québec. Across Canada and North America, through steel arch spans are generally used for long-span crossings and feature overhead bracing. Shorter spans that lack overhead bracing like that seen here in Ormstown appear to have been part of Québec's standard plan design but are otherwise rare on a national level.
