Right - Facing northeast along the alignment of the railway line at street level. Had it not been for the grade separation here, the railway would pass diagonally across this intersection. Originally, the two roads met at a point just north of this location. When the grade separation was completed in 1974, it eliminated both the at-grade railway crossing on Hwy 48 and the one on York Regional Road 13.

Left - Eastern side of the Black River Bridge on Hwy 48 north of Mount Albert. Structure completed in 1975.
Photograph taken on April 10, 2005  -  © Cameron Bevers

Right - The Black River Bridge is almost identical to the Mount Albert Creek Bridge in terms of its design, although the latter bridge is much shorter. The laminated timber deck and timber trestle design common to both of these bridges was seldom used in Southern Ontario, making these two structures rather peculiar anomalies for the area. The Black River Bridge was also replaced by a new structure in 2005.
