NEW Left - Eastern side of the Four Mile Creek Bridge on Hwy 6 between Arthur and Mount Forest. This closed-spandrel concrete arch bridge dates from approximately 1910, although the exact age of this bridge is not known. The bridge was originally constructed prior to the assumption of the Guelph-Mount Forest Road as a Provincial Highway in 1920. Presumably, this bridge was built by Wellington County. The arch bridge was initially built with only a single traffic lane, but it was expanded to its current width by the Department of Highways during a reconstruction project along Hwy 6 in 1932. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Right - Western side of the Four Mile Creek Bridge on Hwy 6 north of Arthur. The handsome arch design and tranquil rural setting made the Four Mile Creek Bridge one of the most photogenic bridges on the King's Highways of Southern Ontario. Sadly, age was taking its toll on the near century-old arch bridge. The Four Mile Creek Bridge was replaced with a new structure in 2009. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
