Bridge Documentation

This is a suspension bridge built ca. 1951 next to an enormous hydroelectric power plant. The bridge has a very minimal tower design. The deck truss stiffening for this bridge is welded and may not be original. The cables have also been replaced, in a project dating to 2011-2012. Although a late, and altered example of this bridge type, it is nevertheless rare in the context of bridge types in Canada. The bridge is a single span suspension brdige, meaning the backstays are unloaded. The length between back of anchorages is 1,000 feet (305 meters).
