Will Rebuild the Trestle.
D., L. & W. Company to Expend Between
Thirty and Fifty Thousand Dollars

The Lackawanna Railroad Company, recognizing the importance of Oswego as a coal shipping point, and wishing to be in a position to handle its immense business, has decided to rebuild the big trestle on the lake front. With that end in view the company has purchased eighty carloads of timber and will engage a large force of men in order that the job may be completed by the opening of navigation in the Spring.

It is proposed to rebuild the entire East side of the trestle this Winter, as that portion is most badly in need of repair. Between $30,000 and $50,000 will be spent on the work, as the company desires to have it done in a thorough manner. Such an improvement means that many carpenters will find employment during the Winter at remunerative wages. Division Foreman Woodward, of Syracuse, who superintended the erection of the Lackawanna train shed, is to have charge of the work.

The plans call for the removal of the old timbers, and replacing with new ones as the work proceeds. Just as soon as the old timber is removed a new stick will be put in its place, thus making the work continuous.
