Looking north, September 12, 1900. One of the temporary timber trestles for the Eight Track bridge is in service for construction of the interim fixed through-truss spans. The canal has been in service and water has been flowing by this crossing for nine months. The substructure piers for the bridge on each side of the channel were completed prior to filling the canal with water. Superstructure construction has been started as noted by the pylons protruding above track level. (MWRD photo 1788)
