Canadian National Railway Co. (CNR.T, CNI) on Tuesday said it will team with Imperial Oil Ltd. (IMO.T, IMO) and Suncor Energy Inc. (SU.T, SU) to rebuild a key rail bridge in Alberta that was destroyed by a wildfire in May.
Canadian National said it will rebuild the approaches on both ends of the 360-foot bridge over the Steen River with concrete and steel and will replace the bridge deck of the steel span in a project that should be completed by mid-August.
Imperial and Suncor are contributing funds to the reconstruction, the railway added.
The bridge provided a vital supply route for fuel and other commodities from Alberta to many remote communities in Canada's Northwest Territories.
