At mile 16 on the Alaska Highway, there is a short detour to the original curved bridge built in the 1940's, on the other side there is a nice photo spot and it is worth walking back for a,view from the bridge.

The Kiskatinaw bridge is the only curved wooden bridge in North America. It is on the old Alaska highway. It is a sight that should be seen if you travel the Alaska highway.

What makes this old wooden bridge unique is that it is curved. Built in 1942 it is considered an engineering marvel and was once part of the historic Alaska Highway. I drove over this bridge at least a 100 times when it was still part of the original highway going north from Dawson Creek. Well worth the detour

Beautiful any time of year...but much safer in the summer....it is made of wood...and is curved...can get quite slippery in the winter. This was originally part of the Alaska hwy...but,now with the new bridge and portion of hwy,,,the old bridge is less traveled....this makes it much easier to enjoy!

Always a beautiful landscape, changes yearly. We are fortunate to have a wonderful Provincial Park at the base of the bridge.
