Bridge Documentation

This bridge was built 1907-09 by the Hamilton Bridge Company. The Canadian National Railway (CNR) assumed responsibility for the bridge in the 1920s. The bridge was built as a combined railroad and highway bridge with 12 foot cantilevered deck extensions on each side for traffic. Vehicular traffic continued to use the bridge until 1960 when the Diefenbaker Bridge was constructed. The cantilevered decks no longer remain on the bridge. The fixed truss spans are 146 feet while the swing span is 256 feet.
