Long Description:
This is where the Crowsnest Highway crosses the Granby River as it heads for its meeting with the Kettle River, just 1/4 mile further south. The date, inset in a concrete pillar at each end of the bridge, tells us that it was built in 1957.

The steel truss bridge is a two lane bridge of about 200 feet in span. It would have replaced an older wooden bridge at roughly the same location.

Parking is available south of the highway just off the west end of the bridge.
Date built or dedicated as indicated on the date stone or plaque.: 1957

Date stone, plaque location.: Concrete pillar, each end of bridge, right hand side

Road, body of water, land feature, etc. that the bridge spans.: Granby River
