Long Description:
This little bridge is the first crossing of the Granby River north of Grand Forks. The next crossing is 11.5 km further north on a small single lane bailey bridge. The bridge is one wide lane in width and about 100 to 120 feet in total length. The centre section is a classic steel trussed girder of about 80 feet supported by steel pilings on each end. Each end has a short steel beam extension of 15 or 20 feet.

This bridge is a novelty for us in that it is the first plank decked bridge we've found that isn't a Bailey Bridge. Didn't even realize it was a plank bridge until we looked at the photos much, much later. Will have to be more observant in the future. After all, that is what waymarkers are supposed to be - OBSERVANT!

This bridge has been found by the locals to be a fine fishing spot. They can pull over and park right at the west end of the bridge and dangle their bait in the river off the side of the bridge. Traffic isn't what anyone would call heavy, so it makes for a pastoral and relaxing place to drown worms.
Type: Plank Bridge
