Long Description:
The steel girder bridge was built in 1955 at the time that the highway was being upgraded. As with many of the bridges built by the British Columbia Department of Highways, the date is stamped in the right hand wing wall on each end of the bridge. Just behind the southeast wing wall on this bridge is a benchmark, 82C818, monumented on the bridge seat below.

Two lanes wide, the bridge is about 150 feet long, supported by a pair of concrete piers, one on each bank of the creek.

It's possible to park just off the southeast corner of the bridge.
