Niagara Falls bridge.—We are officially advised in connection with the reconstruction of the bridge over the main line tracks at Niagara Falls, Ont., that the work will be done by the railway's own forces, and that it will be started at an early date. The present structure consists of one girder span on timber frame bents, with timber approaches, which has served its purpose. The new bridge is to be built with concrete walls and concrete dwarf piers, the span over the main line tracks will be of sufficient length to take care of a future extension of a siding on the north side. The superstructure will consist of girder spans now in stock. The floor beams will consist of rolled beams rivetted to the side girders, on which will be placed released T rails embedded in concrete, which will form the flooring. The approach gradients, which, for the present bridge, are 9%, will be reduced to 8% in the new one.
