Grand Trunk betterments, etc.


The scheme for the reorganization of the Chicago & G.T. finances, which is detailed on page 319, provides for the double tracking of the line & revision of grades, etc. H. A. Woods has been appointed engineer in charge of all new work in this connection, with office at Detroit, Mich. It is proposed to build a second track from Port Huron to Chicago, & to reduce grades throughout the line, to compare favorably at least, with other lines leading to the east from Chicago. To accomplish this, it will be necessary to make diversions from the present line in several places. The work will be done gradually to avoid interruption to traffic. About 60 miles of the work will be opened early next year. For the present, at least, the Co. will do all the train work with its own force.
