VIDEO – James Street Swing Bridge is OPEN RIGHT NOW

(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Despite our previous report and other local media reporting that the James Street Swing Bridge is opening tomorrow at 10:00 am, it is actually open right now.


Perhaps there is some sort of “grand opening” tomorrow, even tho the bridge is open right now to both vehicular and pedestrian traffic in both directions.

I was uncertain of this being factual so I took a boot down to the bridge and recorded the below video of me crossing the bridge.

CN Rail’s bridge is now open for traffic.

After years and years of courtroom battles over who is to pay for the damage that was caused during a 2013 fire, courts ordered CN Rail to pay for the repairs and get the bridge open.


Rejoice! The bridge is finally open!
