Grand River bridge, Brantford.—The Board of Railway Commissioners has authorized the rebuilding of bridge 75, mileage 8.21, over the Grand river at Brantford, Ont. Work was reported to have been started Oct. 14, and it is expected that the bridge will be completed by the spring. The plans provide for erection of an additional span of 76 1/2 ft. at the western end, and the lengthening of the eastern span by 15 ft. The new piers and abutments will be of concrete. The cost is estimated at $40,000.
