Bridge Street Bridge

This is one of my favourite spots. I never wondered why it was that one of the main streets in Sackville was called "Bridge Street." Even so, I one day learned the answer to the question I never bothered to pose. At the westernmost end of Bridge Street is this old bridge, quite intact and serviceable except for the fact that it is missing its middle.
Besides being interesting in its own right, it's a great place to from which to take in the mudflats of the Tantramar River and the surrounding marsh.

Location: Western end-point of Bridge Street, Sackville, New Brunswick
Details: Instead of following the curve of the new street that leads to the Highway, keep going strait until the road ends at a small embankment. Walk around or over the embankment to access the bridge.
