Cherryvale Bridge, before and after (GNB)

Covered bridges have been a storied part of New Brunswick’s history but one was lost on Wednesday.

The power of an ice jam and raging flood waters on the Canaan River swept away the Cherryvale Bridge – an 87-year-old covered crossing.

It is not yet clear when a new bridge will be built or if the provincial Department of Transportation will replace it with another covered bridge.
