Quebec Canada Map and Coat of Arms


Milby, Quebec, Nov. 27, 2003 - The Town of Waterville has closed the Milby covered bridge to motorized traffic as advised by the Quebec Ministry of Transport after an inspection found supporting beams under the bridge are stressed.

The Town is seeking a grant from the Ministry of Culture to fund repairs.

The Milby covered bridge, WGN 61-67-03, stands near Route 147 between Huntingville and Compton.

According to the World Guide To Covered Bridges, the 78-foot bridge crosses the Moe River using the Town Truss. The bridge was built in 1873.
