Left - Close-up of the Opasatika River Bridge on Hwy 11. This four-span concrete beam-and-slab structure was completed in 1951. The design of the Opasatika River Bridge is nearly identical to other concrete bridges built along Hwy 11 in the early 1940s, which suggests that the bridge was actually designed years before it was constructed. Many bridge construction projects in Ontario had to be postponed in the late 1940s and early 1950s due to shortages of structural steel following World War II. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Left - Another view of the Mattice Creek Bridge on Hwy 11. From the mid-1930s up until the early 1970s, these concrete barrel arch structures were commonly used by the Department of Highways to carry smaller watercourses below highways constructed on fill sections such as this one. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - East portion of the Missinaibi River Bridge on Hwy 11 at Mattice. This seven-span continuous steel deck truss structure was completed in 1961. Thanks to an island situated in the middle of the broad Missinaibi River, it is actually impossible to photograph the entire northern side of the structure at once. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - Looking west along Hwy 11 from Mattice across the massive Missinaibi River Bridge. This 900-foot long structure is one of the longest bridges on Hwy 11. The new deck truss structure replaced a temporary steel beam bridge supported on steel "H-Beam" bents which was constructed here in 1948. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
(Photograph taken on August 20, 2003  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - Remains of the steel "H-Beam" piers of the previous temporary Missinaibi River Bridge can still be seen in the river today. This former bridge consisted of 17 spans, totalling 890 feet in length. The bridge replaced an older timber truss bridge which was constructed in 1922, but was badly damaged during a spring flood in 1947 and was nearly destroyed by a similar flood in 1948. The temporary bridge was deliberately offset from the existing Hwy 11 alignment, in order to simplify the construction of a new permanent bridge in the future. This temporary structure carried Hwy 11 traffic from 1948 up until the completion of the current bridge in 1961. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
