After 100 years the The Canadian National Railroad bridge at the end of Dakin Street, which for years was a secondary access to Potter Park, is coming down.

The bridge hasn’t seen any traffic for six years due to the bad condition and because it has been costing more to make it meet standards.  The decision to tear it down has been around for a while but it will finally be done. The tear down will take about four weeks to complete.

To help out with traffic there is a new emergency entrance to the zoo at the end of Allen Street.

Built in 1917, the bridge is a private structure and didn’t qualify for federal or state funds. To read more about the history of the Canadian National Railroad Bridge, you can see it here.
