Sunken Bridge


On the right hand side of the picture there is evidence of the old bridge supports of an original crossing of the Battle River at a location 1 ½ miles west of Ponoka. This bridge was replaced by a sunken bridge which is a concrete crossing (with a series of culverts to allow flow) that allows flood water to go over the bridge. (Obviously the sunken bridge is closed during floods)
