Long Description:
Vers les années 1890, un pont couvert enjambait la rivière Ulverton à la hauteur du moulin du même nom. Remplacé par un pont plat en 1952, il est rebâti à l'automne 1992 par une équipe de bénévoles. Le 17 juin 1993, il est détruit par un incendie d'origine criminelle.

Le pont a été reconstruit en 1993/1994. On a ajouté un passage piétonnier ainsi qu'un système automatique de sécurité contre le feu. Le nouveau pont a été inauguré le 18 juin 1994.
