Located 32 km outside of Dawson City, near Farmington, this marvel of engineering dates back to the Second World War. The exit off the route 97 (Alaska Hwy) is easy to miss and marked only by a low brown "historic site" sign. Google map actually places it on the wrong rt 97 (John Hart highway), so be aware...another newer bridge... More

I love this bridge and I've spent many hours at the base swimming and taking pictures. Not only is the valley beautiful, but the bridge is fascinating with it's all wood construction. Being a curved bridge is unusual as well. It's worth the time to take a little side trip to view from deck and from the river bed.

The visitor has to turn off of the Alaska Highway, and travel a couple of miles to the Bridge. However, if you have the time for a short detour, and an interest in History, the effort is well worthwhile. The Bridge was an integral part of the Alaska Highway when built during the 2nd World War. It remains to this... More

I am from Dawson Creek and I still go out to the curved bridge. There is just something special about that spot If you are driving the Alaska Highway definitely take the time to experience it

The beauty of the Kistatinaw bridge is breath taking in the summer. The historical back ground makes us go back on a regular basis.

This bridge is close to the main highway. The 9 degree curve was required during the building due to the geography. Access to the river below is available from one side.

The Kiskatinaw Bridge is sure worth seeing and we skipped it the last time we were on the Alaska Highway. This time we went to see it and the view is wonderful as well as the fact of driving on what I understand to be the last of the original wooden bridges built for the original route of the Alaska...

If you are visiting Dawson Creek, this is something you have to see and it's free. There are good views from the bridge and it is worthwhile going down to the river to see the bridge from below. Not only is the bridge a wooden tresle construction but it is also on a bend.
