Long Description:
Known locally as "The Black Bridge" and built around 1897-98 this bridge served the CPR for both freight and passenger service on the Columbia and Western Railway until the 1960s, when passenger service in the area was discontinued.

By 1988 the CPR folded all of its operations in Grand Forks, leaving behind only the railway station and a few bridges in the area, this being one of them.

As do many towns these days, Grand Forks eventually saw its value as a landmark, and incorporated it into a system of walking/jogging/hiking/biking trails within the city.
Location Name: Across from the Black Bridge
