Irving Wallboard Plant Spur Crosses Bayside Drive

Alert Ron Grant noticed that NB Southern put the rail line across Bayside Drive in Saint John on Saturday, September 22.

As he told me: "They routed all traffic through the south side of the Dry Dock property. I came home tonight and it's all paved. The crew is still there cleaning the street before opening Bayside Drive to traffic. When they are done they will still need to join the road track to the track in the Dry Dock property where the traffic was rerouted. A lady spokesperson stated arms and lights will be in place within 2-3 weeks."

The smokestacks in the background are NB Power's Courtenay Bay generating station.

The crossing is right about in the middle of this map.

Thanks, Ron!
