Left - The Little Jocko River Bridge was recently rehabilitated by the MTO. Parts of the concrete abutments are still original and unmodified. The original bridge sections are discernible by the impressions left in the concrete by the single-plank timber forms that were used to construct most Ontario bridges until about 1955. Large plywood sheets were used as forms for concrete pours on most bridges after 1955, which gave the finished concrete a much smoother surface. Note the structure identification number, which was stamped into the bridge parapet during reconstruction.
