Historic Sites of Manitoba: Broadway Bridge / Provencher Bridge (Winnipeg)

A plaque located south of the Provencher Bridge on the west side of Avenue Taché (river side) explains the design and construction of the Provencher Bridge, built between 2001 and 2003. Other plaques mounted on the bridge describe the construction of the first bridge connecting Winnipeg and St. Boniface in the late 1880s. The English version is located on the southeast corner of the Esplanade Riel, the pedestrian bridge built south of the new Provencher Bridge (St. Boniface). Its coordinates are N49.89098, W97.12582. The French version is found on the southwest corner (The Forks) at N49.89040, W97.12847.
