Guelph's Heffernan Foot Bridge

Heffernan Foot Bridge in winter
Heffernan Foot Bridge in summer

This graceful arched bridge of reinforced concrete was built in 1914, replacing the original 1881 steel bridge, to plans by E. E. Clawson, City Engineer.

A unique feature of the riverscape and important pedestrian link to the city's commercial core.

Its not too often one finds such an elegant foot bridge. How nice that people get something nice and not just the cars.

I love the lighting in the winter view. The sun really makes it look inviting.
