Rail Bridges

Rail Bridges

Delivering Responsibly is one of the most important dimensions of what CN stands for and we are intently focused on strengthening our leadership role in safety. This principle drives how we conduct our business every day – moving customer goods safely and efficiently, ensuring environmental stewardship, attracting and developing the best railroaders, adhering to the highest ethical standards, and building safer, stronger communities.

CN rail bridges vary from single timber 12-foot spans over streams in fields across the Midwest and Prairies, to structures spanning more than a mile over some of the continent's largest rivers. They are all inspected, maintained and, as necessary, repaired or rebuilt by a qualified workforce led by designated CN bridge engineers in accordance with federal regulations and CN's Bridge Management Program.
