Rail service is resuming in Mayerthorpe, less than a month after the CN Trestle Bridge burned to the ground in an alleged arson.
CN says crews worked 20-straight days to erect a new bridge to replace the 12-hundred food wooden bridge that burned.
190-thousand metric tonnes of materials were brought in to build the structure, which is made of concrete and steel now.
The bridge was set ablaze at the end of April.
RCMP have charged Lawson Michael Schalm, 19, of Mayerthorpe, a volunteer firefighter, with 18 counts of arson in relation to the bridge blaze and a rash of other fires. (twd, The Canadian Press, Global Edmonton)
