Comments on Grand River Abutments

Jack Jackowetz at 16:23 on Thursday January 21, 2016

These abutments are from the Lake Erie & Northern Railway bridge that crossed the Grand River. A portion of the Brantford Southern Access Route south of these abutments was built on the LE & N right of way. Construction on the LE & N commenced in May-1913 and the line opened for traffic in 1916.
