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

This steel through truss bridge over the Assiniboine River in the Municipality of Russell-Binscarth was constructed in 1928 to enable Provincial Trunk Highway #4 (today’s PTH #16) to cross the river. Around 1966, the highway was rerouted to the south so this bridge is now used primarily for local traffic to the Wolverine district.
