Historic Sites of Manitoba: Concrete Bowstring Arch Bridge (Cypress Creek, Clearwater, Municipality of Louise)

This concrete bowstring arch bridge over the Cypress Creek, near Clearwater in the Rural Municipality of Louise, was constructed between 1919 and 1920 by the Winnipeg construction firm of Alex Gall and Company. The cost of construction was about $13,700. In deteriorating condition, the bridge was closed to vehicular traffic in 2016 and demolished in the spring of 2018.
