Historic Sites of Manitoba: Fairford Railway Bridge (RM of Grahamdale)

This steel bridge across the Fairford River, in the Rural Municipality of Grahamdale, was constructed around 1910 during construction of a line of the Canadian Northern Railway to the mines at Gypsumville. Designed to pivot in the centre to permit passages of ships on the river, the bridge is now abandoned.
