Bridge Documentation

St. Paul Crescent is the name of the road that this bridge once carried. Essentially cut off by King's Highway 406, it is now closed to vehicular traffic, but remains in use by non-motorized traffic, since a trail system that parallels King's Highway 406 is linked to this bridge today. This bridge is located next to the Burgoyne Bridge which plays a key role in allowing visitors to enjoy this beautiful truss bridge. From on top of the Burgoyne Bridge, which carries St. Paul Street, you can get beautiful birds-eye views of this bridge.

This bridge is a through Parker truss, with riveted connections. Original guardrails are present on the cantilevered sidewalks as well as on one side of the road deck. There are no guardrails for the other side of the deck, is how it was when it was built, since during that time, there was less concern or awareness of the hazards either associated with a colliding car damaging itself on the truss members, or alternatively, the car damaging the truss members. The bridge makes widespread use of built-up beams which include visually pleasing V-lacing, present on vertical members, under the top chord, and on the sway bracing and diagonal overhead bracing. The truss shows no signs of alteration and as such the historic integrity of this bridge appears to be excellent. It is in good physical condition and functions beautifully as a pedestrian crossing.

A previous bridge at this location was a wooden swing bridge.
