Priceville Footbridge

Priceville Footbridge

Mcnamee/Priceville Footbridge is the longest (200 m) suspension footbridge in New Brunswick, Canada. It spans the Southwest Miramichi River at Priceville, approximately 12 km west of Doaktown, New Brunswick.

The footbridge, constructed in 1938, had a single span, but was destroyed during the spring freshet of 1939, with 3 lives lost. A second bridge was built in 1939. This bridge was replaced by a third footbridge in 1988. The two latter bridges, unlike the original, used two spans to cross the river. The bridge is shared by both Priceville and Mcnamee, and therefore known as the Priceville footbridge to residents of Priceville, and Mcnamee foot bridge to residents of Mcnamee. It is officially known as the Priceville Footbridge. [New Brunswick Department of Transportation - Footbridges ( [] )]

The bridge is provincially owned, and maintained by the New Brunswick Department of Transportation.

The footbridge is an important part of the community's heritage.
