(THUNDER BAY, ON) – CN now must reopen the James Street Bridge to vehicular traffic as Canada’s highest court has now rejected their appeal and have upheld the previous decision.
The court shot down CN’s leave to appeal application. The court found that the closure of the bridge had violated the 1906 agreement which would have CN maintain access in perpetuity.
The James Street Bridge has been closed to vehicular traffic since a fire ripped through the structure in October of 2013.
Last year, the Ontario Court of Appeal overturned the original decision on the matter.
