Woodmore area

Concrete Box Bridge

Designation Date: February 8, 2000
Designation Authority: R.M. of Franklin
Present Owner: Emerson-Franklin (M)

Contractor Fred Esterby took his responsibilities seriously, responding to bridge-building requests by the Rural Municipality of Franklin with modest but distinctive designs. Built in 1920, this bridge over the Jordan River was similar in form to an earlier bridge from 1917. Where that bridge featured brick work for the balusters, Mr. Esterby chose open columnar design for his 1920 creation.
