Left - View of the Humber River Bridge substructure. The longitudinal concrete beams supporting the deck are extraordinarily large for a structure of this vintage, suggesting that the bridge designers in the 1930s anticipated heavy traffic volumes on this highway.

Left - The Humber River Bridge at Kleinburg has not seen any extensive rehabilitative work done on it thus far, meaning that the original 1930s parapets remain unaltered. The parapets are protected from highway traffic by temporary Jersey barriers.

Right - As with most highway bridges constructed in the 1930s, considerable attention was paid to overall aesthetics by adding simple decorative elements into the bridge's parapets. This "stepped" concrete stanchion is a nice example of a simple but elegant decorative feature used on many Ontario bridges from the 1930s. Unfortunately, creativity such as this is very uncommon in bridges built today.

Right - As with the other Humber River structure south of Kleinburg, the concrete beams supporting the deck are very large. This suggests that highway designers in the 1930s predicted heavy traffic volumes on Hwy 27 in the future.
