Photo: Esplanade Riel Bridge City Of Winnipeg Manitoba Canada

The Esplanade Riel Bridge is a pedestrian walking bridge across the Red River in Winnipeg, a city in the Province of Manitoba, Canada. The bridge was designed by Étienne Gaboury of Wardrop Engineering, and was completed in 2003.

The Esplanade Riel Bridge spans the Red River and connects downtown Winnipeg with St. Boniface - an area in the city, which is mostly home to the Franco-Manitoban community. This pedestrian bridge also has vehicular partner called the Provencher Bridge.

This unique bridge in downtown Winnipeg is one of only a few in the world that actually has a restaurant located on the bridge, the Salisbury House. The view from this restaurant is uninterrupted, as it is located on the bridge, so it does not have any other buildings to contend with and gives diners a look at the intricate construction of the bridge as well.

The bridge is built in a side-spar cable stayed style, meaning it is supported from one side, and not from both ends, like a traditional cable bridge. ... continue below the picture...
