Historic Sites of Manitoba: Concrete Arch Bridge (Whitemud River, Municipality of Glenella-Lansdowne)

A concrete arch bridge over the Whitemud River was built in 1921, at E10-14-13W in the Municipality of Glenella-Lansdowne. Still standing as of 2014, its elegant concrete walls are concealed by deep deposits of gravel on the roadway.
