Our Very Own Can-Opener Bridge


You may have heard of the “Canopener Bridge” in Durham, North Carolina — a railway span with 11 feet 8 inches of clearance that has attracted so many accidents, an enterprising individual set up a webcam and attracted a fan base.

Here in Kitchener, the Park Street underpass is just 11 feet, and Park Street has become one of the main alternates for getting between Kitchener and Waterloo now that King Street is closed for LRT construction.

The results have been predictable. See my photo above.

Somebody should set up a web cam.
