Historic Sites of Manitoba: Steel Pony Truss Bridge (Birdtail Creek, Birtle, Municipality of Prairie View)

In 1906, this steel pony truss bridge was built over the Little Saskatchewan River in the Rural Municipality of Daly. It was used until 1981 when it was purchased by the Town of Birtle and moved to this site over the Birdtail Creek as a project commemorating Birtle’s 100th anniversary. A former railway bridge was installed in its place at the original site.
