G2G Trail Celebrates Completion Of Major Bridge

The Guelph to Goderich Rail Trail is hosting a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Monday to celebrate the completion of the Blyth Brook Bridge.

Huron County Warden Jim Ginn explains this bridge isn’t as big as the one that will have to be built over the Maitland River but it is one of the larger bridges along that trail. It’s 20 metres long and 3 metres wide and can handle a groomer for snowmobile trails as well. Ginn says with the Blyth Brook Bridge in place the trail is now complete from the Maitland River Eastward. The ribbon-cutting ceremony takes place at 11:15 Monday morning on the trail and parking is available along Limekiln Line in Auburn.

The bridge is about a ten-minute walk from the trail entrance and there is a reception at noon the Cowbell Brewing Company in Blyth.

“This is one of the larger bridges, wont’ be as big obviously as the one that has to go across the Maitland but this is a fairly large bridge. So this will complete from the Maitland River eastward and this is one off the last bridges that needs to be put into place.”

“It crosses the Blyth Brook which is a tributary of the Maitland. So it’s 20 metres long and 3 metres wide and can handle a groomer for snowmobile trails as well.”
