Left - Close-up of the unusual concrete and steel handrail design of the Rondeau Creek Bridge. This structure was built by Kent County in the 1930s when the highway to Rondeau was just a county road. The highway to Rondeau Provincial Park was not designated as King's Highway 51 until 1970. See an Enlarged Photo here.
