The current bridge was constructed in 1931, and later reinforced in 1990.Three previous bridges spanned the same location, the first constructed by Wet'suwet'en people, generations before white settlement. The Wet'suwet'en later reinforced their bridge using cable abandoned after the disbandment of the Russian–American Telegraph expedition.
