Félix-Gabriel-Marchand Bridge

Félix-Gabriel-Marchand Bridge (commonly known as just Marchand Bridge or simply the Red Bridge) is a covered bridge in the Township of Mansfield-et-Pontefract, Quebec, Canada, that crosses the Coulonge River near Fort-Coulonge. Constructed in 1898, this bridge is unique in Quebec because of its combination of Town and Queenpost trusses. It is also the only surviving covered bridge in Quebec built in the 19th century outside of the Eastern Townships.
