The Piney Road Bridge, a single-span, reinforced-concrete bowstring arch bridge, is a fine, enduring local landmark significant for its design and engineering merit. Composed of three major structural components, namely the tied-arch bowstrings, floor tie beams and deck, the fixed superstructure is an elegant expression of strength and grace. The bridge, which replaced two earlier wooden bridges, recalls the place where pioneers in the area often crossed the Seine River. With its two narrow lanes, the bridge is used continuously by local traffic and represents an important feature of the historic development of Ste. Anne.
