Left - Facing south along Hwy 577 towards Monteith at the Meadow Creek Bridge. This narrow structure is really only one lane wide. Northbound traffic on Hwy 577 is required to yield right-of-way to any southbound Hwy 577 traffic departing from Iroquois Falls. Fortunately, Hwy 577 is not a busy highway, so wait times for northbound motorists are minimal. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
