Pont couvert - Pont Wakefield

Wakefield ( Outaouais )

Built in 1915, Gendron covered bridge Wakefield burned in 1984. Three years later, a local volunteer committee proposes to rebuild it. Their goal is to rebuild the bridge in accordance with the original, but to reserve its use for pedestrians and cyclists. The new bridge was opened in 1998.

The bridge structure is of Douglas fir logs, while the outside and the floor are covered with pine boards.

It measures 87.8 meters (288 feet) long by 5.5 meters (18 feet) wide. The walls are of a height of 4.9 meters (16 feet).
