Dougall Super-Highway – 1931

    The new super-highway provided by widening Dougall Road this year, supplementing widening of the three subways last year.

According to the article to go with the picture, the cost of widening and resurfacing Dougall Ave was $75,000 (about $1.1 million in 2014). The highway was expanded from between the CPR tracks and the Grand Marais Drain, and widened 9 feet on either side. I remember there being two bridges in my younger years, but I don’t recall a third one. That must have been removed some time ago…
