An old abandoned bridge in mennonite country. It wasn't in the budget to repair this one. I believe it was closed in 2004. It was constructed in 1920 and is the earliest in a grouping of half-through girder bridges built in the Township of Centre Wellington during the 1920s. like this bridge, they each display an early experimentation with concrete, which has resulted in decorative concrete railings with a solid centre portion and balustrades on each side. The thin boards used to set the concrete on site during construction left imprints that are still visible. Portions of the decorative balustrades are missing. This bridge was engineered by the firm of Bowman & Connor who had offices in Toronto and Berlin (Kitchener). The firm became a prolific and well-known bridge engineering company in Wellington County in the early 20th century.
Its a creepy little spot. The flow of water here has been stopped by fallen tree's. The water just sits stagnant with a gungy film on its surface and a swampy aroma in the air. When I first arrived there was two large snapping turtles mating in the water. Don't mind me. Carry on about your business. I'm just photographing the bridge and I'll be gone..
