Rail Bridge Back Open in Welland

July 18, 2019

By: Marie Cassidy

It's been given the green light and has re-opened to train traffic.

CN Rail was called in for a full inspection of the Canal Bank Rail Bridge after a crash yesterday.

The city closed Canal Bank Street to traffic between Sixth and Seventh, but the area has since re-opened.

There was concern that the rail bridge suffered possible structural damage in the crash.

After a full investigation, CN Rail cleared the bridge as safe and opened it to trains.
