Red Bridge Centennial meeting

As Penticton hits its centennial mark, so does a significant landmark just outside of Keremeos.

A meeting was held Wednesday regarding ‘the Red Bridge,’ which was built in 1908.

It’s the last survivor of five bridges which had crossed the Similkameen River on the Great National Railway between Oroville, Keremeos, Hedley and Princeton.

Head of the Red Bridge Centennial Committee, Anna Bartlett, says the bridge is doing well.

“It went through a restoration in 2005. We did a restoration project with the government, so it’s in really good shape,” says Bartlett.

She says the committee meeting was well attended.
