Stoney Creek Bridge is a 656-foot (200 m) long truss arch bridge in British Columbia, Canada. It carries the Canadian Pacific Railway single track of 295 feet (90 m) over the Stoney Creek, between Revelstoke and Golden. A wooden bridge was originally built on the site in 1885, and the current steel structure was built in 1893. A second set of arches was added in 1929 to handle heavier traffic. The original bridge was the tallest wooden bridge in the world at that time.
