The Hartland Bridge was constructed in 1901 by the Hartland Bridge Company and it was not originally built covered. The bridge was funded by tolls until it was purchased by the provincial government in 1906. The provincial government took over the ownership and maintenance of the bridge and removed the tolls. In 1920, two spans of the bridge collapsed due to Saint John's river ice. The bridge reopened in 1922 after construction to repair the structure, at which time the bridge was also covered, despite some local opposition.
