Clark's Bridge

The Clark Bridge over Time

Clark's bridge, built in 1891. It replaced a wooden bridge that was built in the 1870s. In the summer, we still see the base of the old pillars in the water, to the northwest. Some say that the steel used to build the current bridge was transported by horses on the frozen river bed, that winter, from Valcartier Station (known today as Shannon). (2016)

The Covered Bridge

A few kilometers from here, the road crosses the Jacques-Cartier river again. A covered bridge was built in the winter of 1939-1940. It burnt in 1972 and the current bridge was built in 1975.

The Concrete Bridge

Concrete bridge on Redmond Road, near the 5th Avenue, built in 1975. (2016)
