Historical Secondary Highway 584 Photographs


HWY 584 #1

Above - Barton Bay Bridge on the Geraldton-Little Long Lac Road (later known as Hwy 584). This impressive creosoted timber truss and trestle structure was constructed by the Department of Northern Development in the early 1930s. The bridge crossed the narrows of Kenogamisis Lake at the entrance to Barton Bay, located just south of Geraldton. Prior to the completion of the new highway link between Hearst and Nipigon (Hwy 11) in the early 1940s, travel in the Geraldton area was predominantly done on the water. Accordingly, the timber truss section of the Barton Bay Bridge was elevated in order to provide sufficient navigational clearance for larger marine vessels. This structure stood until 1945, when it was replaced by a wider creosoted timber trestle bridge, with improved highway approaches and a much lower profile. See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken in 1934.
