Bridge Documentation

This railway bridge is noted for its large, heavy duty truss spans which carry a double-track deck. Of the four truss spans on the bridge, one is larger than the other three.  Lengths given are estimates. The largest truss span appears to be 225 feet, while the shorter spans are estimated at 100 feet. The southern approach spans are plate girders, and at least some of them appear to be modern replacements.

The bridge used to sit next to another truss bridge. The other bridge was a pin-connected Parker truss and was demolished and replaced with a modern bridge. A couple parts of the demolished heritage bridge are on display nearby.

The bridge is situated at a historic canal and contributes to the interest of the site. A number of interpretive signs can be found in the park space under the bridge.

Above: As late as 1992 there were four heritage bridges at this location. Today only this railway bridge remains. The above photo is from September 16, 1974. The highway bridge in the foreground was a 1964 cable-stayed bridge, likely one of the first such bridges in Canada. The highway truss bridge behind it dated to 1922-1924.
