Star Mine Suspension Bridge

The Star Mine Suspension Bridge is a 117 metre long pedestrian suspension bridge across the Red Deer River in Drumheller, Alberta, Canada. Constructed in 1931, it was built for the coal workers of Star Mine.[1] In 1958, the Alberta provincial government rebuilt (and currently maintains) the bridge to "commemorate part of the colourful mining history of the Drumheller Valley."
