Historic Sites of Manitoba: Steel Truss Bridge (Assiniboine River, Municipality of Russell-Binscarth)

This steel truss bridge over the Assiniboine River in the Municipality of Russell-Binscarth was probably constructed in the 1910s or 1920s to enable Provincial Trunk Highway #4 (today’s PTH #16) to cross the river. The highway was later rerouted to the south so this bridge is now used primarily for local traffic.
