Historic Sites of Manitoba: Concrete Arch Bridge (Oak River, Sioux Valley Dakota Nation)

This concrete arch bridge over the Oak River, formerly in the Rural Municipality of Woodworth and now in the Sioux Valley Dakota Nation, was constructed between July 1917 and February 1918 by contractor L. O. Beam for the Manitoba Good Roads Board, at a total cost of $10,293 shared equally by the municipal and provincial governments. It is now abandoned south of the present-day highway.
