Workers cut a piece of the Canadian Pacific bridge, built in 1892, over the Highwood River, to be lifted out by a pair of 200-ton cranes, November 14, 2013. The removal of the bridge was announced on September 25, 2013 by Alberta province's Associate Minister for Recovery and Reconstruction (High River) Rick Fraser and then High River mayor Emile Blokland, who hoped it will help mitigate the type of severe flooding that happened on June 20, 2013, where debris dammed up at the bridge and caused water to overflow the river banks and contributed to the flooding of downtown High River, according to local media.
