Félix-Gabriel-Marchand Bridge

300 Principale St., Mansfield-et-Pontefract (Québec), Canada

The Marchand covered bridge, the longest covered bridge in Quebec, was built in 1898 by Augustus Brown of Beachburg. The 153-metre structure replaced two older bridges spanning the Coulonge River and linking the lumber camp on one shore to the village of Fort Coulonge on the other. Built entirely of pine and held up by six wooden pillars, the one-way bridge was covered so that it wouldn’t rot. The bridge adds charm to the picturesque Coulonge River. You have to admire its beauty by day and its illumination by night!
