Historic Sites of Manitoba: Concrete Arch Bridge (Souris River, Municipality of Grassland)

This graceful concrete arch bridge in the Municipality of Grassland was formerly the primary crossing for Provincial Highway No. 10 over the Souris River. Built in 1929 at a cost of $34,528 by the Winnipeg construction firm of Macaw and MacDonald, it has been superceded by a newer bridge to the west but is still used for local traffic.
