Historic Sites of Manitoba: Concrete Culvert Bridge (Municipality of North Norfolk)

This concrete box bridge along Tower Road in the Rural Municipality of North Norfolk was constructed in 1925 by contractor William Neuman. At that time, this municipal road was intended to become part of the developing Trans-Canada Highway. However, the municipal council received a petition from local citizens who asked to have the highway route changed to its present position, north of the Canadian Pacific Railway tracks. This saved the building of two railway crossings but made the newly-constructed bridges on the original route unnecessary.
