The Low Level Bridge is a bridge that spans the North Saskatchewan River in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. It was built in two parts, the first in 1900, and the second in 1948. Having only half a bridge for nearly 50 years was extremely inconvenient, and the residents of Edmonton were very much relieved when the second half was finally completed.
