Lift Bridge, Selkirk, MB 1

The Selkirk lift bridge, built during the depression of the 1930s, spans the Red River connecting East Selkirk and Selkirk. It is one of only a few remaining bridges in which the centre portion lifts, via huge concrete counter weights suspended from the towers, to allow large ships to pass through.
