This swing bridge with numerous fixed through truss approach spans is the largest and most visually striking bridge in Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean. Several different contractors were involved with the construction of this bridge. See Wikipedia for more information. This bridge no longer opens for boats, and was bypassed by a modern fixed highway bridge in 1972, but the heritage bridge has been preserved for non-motorized traffic. The bridge has a truly impresive variety of steel mill names rolled onto the various members of the bridge, most of them British. Names found include: Algoma Steel, Cargo Fleet, Skinninggrove, Dorman Long, Consett, Lanarkshire, and lastly some British I Steel logos.
