Left - This rigid frame girder bridge gracefully spans Hwy 416 at the entrance to suburban Ottawa. Completed in 1993, the Log Farm Road Bridge is the first new single-span rigid frame structure built across an Ontario freeway since the late 1950s. Single-span concrete rigid frame bridges were very popular in the late 1940s and 1950s. Unfortunately, this attractive design quickly succumbed to the minimalism of the 1960s. Nearly all subsequent freeway grade separations were built using unimaginative concrete or steel girder structures. Today, rigid frame bridges are mostly used for short-span watercourse crossings and small grade separations. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Designers obviously had aesthetics in mind when the Log Farm Bridge was planned. Textured concrete and embossed features were incorporated into these concrete parapets in order to improve the overall design. The handrails on the overpass were painted green. Although this splash of colour is a subtle embellishment to the bridge, it is a huge improvement over the unpainted metal handrails which are normally used on freeway structures. The Log Farm Road Bridge is arguably one of the most appealing freeway structures built in Ontario in recent decades. Hopefully, more bridges of this design will be built on freeways in the future where conditions permit. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
