THE RESTORATION OF THE CISCO BRIDGE

The track structure across the open-deck steel arch bridge of Canadian National in British Columbia had been disturbed prior to installation of welded rail. After a passing train derailed when it spread the rails, the wooden deck took fire and heavily damaged the steel structure. Clearing of the wreckage, design and contracting of replacement spans and the on-site work are described. The 812-ft structure was returned to service in 41 days.
