Albert Memorial Bridge


The Albert Memorial Bridge’s construction was part of a large relief project during the Great Depression.  The bridge was designed by the architectural firm of Puntin, O’Leary and Coxall, as well as consulting engineer Claude A.P, Turner.    The bridge is highly ornamented with Egyptian motifs, lamp standards, flag-staffs, glazed terra-cotta balusters and buffalo heads.  The Albert Memorial Bridge was opened on November 10, 1930 by Premier J.T.M. Anderson and dedicated as a memorial to the Saskatchewan solders who died in World War I.  In 1998, after a $1.4 million restoration project the bridge was re-dedicated.  In 2009 the bridge underwent another refurbishment with the deck resurfaced and the decorative elements restored.
