The Bridges of Outlook

This Made Me Smile Today

We pass the old traffic bridge, pictured here, when we travel through Outlook, Saskatchewan. It spans the South Saskatchewan River. No longer used for traffic, it is now a pedestrian bridge, open to the public. The new traffic bridge is located just south of the old. IMG_1731

Outlook is also the location of the world’s longest pedestrian bridge. (910 metres long and 46 metres high) It’s called the Skytrail, and was originally a railway bridge, built by the Canadian Pacific Railway from 1910 to 1912. The railway discontinued its use it in 1987, after which it was converted into the Skytrail pedestrian bridge.
