Strawberry Creek Bridge

Crest Station Strawberry Creek Bridge Dona Station

The Strawberry Creek Bridge is located just south of Dona Station at Milepost 25.8/25.4. It is 105 feet long and 35 feet high.

The bridge was opened in 1919 and replaced a previous wood trestle. It is unique in that it was constructed entirely out of concrete and it is likely the only such railway structure in the Thunder Bay area. The upgrade was done while the line was operated as part of the Canadian Government Railways (CGR) and is similar to other concrete structures on the line from the same era.

The bridge was used for vehicular traffic for many years until deterioration forced its closure. While it is reasonable shape for its age and lack of maintenance, its long-term future could be in jeopardy.
