The first Kennedy Bridge was completed in 1878. It was a wooden construction which spanned Saltwater Creek and connected Bundaberg with Woongarra. It was replaced in 1899 with a second bridge, made of steel, which still stands today. This second bridge was built at the same time as the Burnett traffic bridge, which was opened in 1900.
