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.
Below is the steel structure that supports the wooden deck.
