Underpass To Follow Ongoing CP Work Efforts


Canadian Pacific has been busy in Salmon Arm lately.

CP has some jobs to finish before Salmon Arm's Ross Street Underpass can begin.

Mayor Alan Harrison has insight, telling us "CP first of all is moving the hot-box pull-off - which is presently on the west side of the tracks, and they're moving it to the east side - and that's used for cars that perhaps detectors have shown their wheels are hot, or their might be brake changes."

After that.. "The two tracks that go through town.. CP is going to put an s-curve in them - so they will curve around where the Underpass is going to be built."

The Mayor says that the City's work will begin soon "We're planning on going out to main tender in about four weeks."

He expects construction by November.
