Dougall Avenue Rail Overpasses – 1972

So a few weeks back, there was a post with a photo looking at the Dougall “Super-Highway” from 1931. In the comments on that thread Tom D says he was forwarding a picture showing the 3 bridges from 1972…

Here’s the image:

The Dougall/Ouellette merge is at the very top, followed by the first bridge. I don’t remember this one at all, it must have been gone before I came to Windsor in 1989. The next two I do remember. Only the one closest to the bottom of the image remains today. Does anyone remember when they took the second one out? Mid 1990s? How about the first one?

Have a good weekend everyone! See you back here Monday.
