Historic Sites of Manitoba: Concrete Beam Bridge (Jordan River, Municipality of Emerson-Franklin)

This small concrete beam bridge over the Jordan River in the Rural Municipality of Franklin was built by contractor Fred Esterby in 1920, replacing a bridge erected three years earlier. Today, the municipally-designated historic site shows signs of deterioration, notably the breakdown and near-absence of balusters in some sections of its railings.
