Historic Sites of Manitoba: Concrete Bowstring Arch Bridge (Seine River, Finnigan Road, Ste. Anne)

Replacing a wooden bridge constructed in Ste. Anne in the 1870s, this 50-foot concrete arch bridge over the Seine River was completed in October 1921 by the Cusson Lumber Company, at a cost of $13,678 borne equally by the provincial and municipal governments. Designated as a municipally-significant historic site in 1987, the bridge was used for local traffic until closed to all but pedestrians and cyclists in 2012. Its heritage status was revoked in early 2013 and the bridge was slated for demolition later in the year.
