Construction & betterment notes.


Tilsonburg, Lake Erie & Pacific.—General Manager Teall informs us, under date of May 7, that about half the steel is laid on the connection between this line & the M.C.R., & work is progressing on the substructure of the Otter Creek bridge, which will be a steel structure 756 ft. long, made by the Dominion Bridge Co. It will rest on 30 cylinders of 4 ft. in diameter, which are sunk in the bottom of the pond until they strike clay bottom, then they are filled with concrete. The picnic grounds at Pt. Burwell are being cleaned & buildings repainted, & everything put in readiness for the summer season. The interlocking plant at the junction of the T.L.E. & P.Ry. & the G.T.R. air line will be completed in the course of a week.
