At mile 21 from Dawson Creek, BC on the Old Alaska Highway is one destination I bring all out of town/country guests. It is a wooden deck, curved bridge spanning the Kiskatinaw River. During the construction of the Alaska Highway in 1942 the approach and shape of the river presented a problem for engineers. The deck is banked to facilitate water run off. The bridge is 190 feet long and boasts a 9 degree turn. It took 9 months to complete, almost as long as the entire Alaska Highway! It is the only wooden bridge of its kind remaining in Western Canada.
