Thia is an abandoned bridge in between Chesterville and Berwick.

I thought it might have been the former NYC Ottawa Division railway bridge from Chrysler. I thought that when the line was abandoned in the late 50's that maybe the bridge was moved from Chrysler t this location.
This is what peaked my interest when I saw it.

Turns out this is just an old road bridge which was abandoned to due the cost of repair.

No way could a bridge like this ever carry a train.

Judging by the old topo maps, the train never passed through this area. The maps actually show that Manley Road went straight north across this bridge to Berwick Road. I am assuming that since this was a single lane bridge and was in need of repair, they simple closed this little used bridge and re-routed Manley Road to the east along the busier farm lane that was already there.
