The Coulée-Carrier Bridge Lost

November 16, 2007 - The Coulée-Carrier Bridge in Quebec, Matane County (61-42-03) was washed away last night.

Heavy rains in a very short period of time raised the Matane River water level and the bridge was washed away and completely destroyed.

Plans were underway to move this bridge closer to the former Durette Covered Bridge (61-42-02) site to be used as an access to a golf club. A few years ago, the bridge was almost lost due to high water.

Heavy equipment was on the site to destroy the old wooden bridge and protect the new concrete bridge. Both were pretty close. I don't know yet if this is what happened last night.
