Grand Trunk betterments, etc.


In regard to the International Bridge between Fort Erie, Ont., & Buffalo, we are officially informed that it is the intention to replace the present structure, which is too light for modern rolling stock, with one that will meet all present requirements & provide a reasonable margin of strength for future increase of weights of rolling stock. There will be no change made in the piers & abutments. The work will not be completed until next summer, but the draw spans will be built during the coming winter as that work cannot be well done during the navigation season.

Railways: G.T.Ry.

Stations: Fort Erie
