Tlie million grade altera- tion was necessary with engi- neering for the Libby Dam es- tablishment of alti- tude maximum level for the 92 miles pondage on the Koote- nay River above the dam, 42 miles of which will be in Can- ada, and above tho level of the existing railway bridge across the Kootenay just downstream from Wardner. Tlie new grade diverts from existing line at North Star sec- tion near North 12th Street in Cranbrook, former diversion for the Cranbrook Kimberley line. Diversion is now slightly soulh of the Cranbrook-Kim- berley highway and the new grade continues from this point north down Joseph Creek to St. Eugene Mission, then down the St. Mary's River to its junc- tion with the Kootenay at Fort Steele. Russell Colombo is engineer for the special railway depart- ment on new construction, and contracts wei'e with Emil An- derson Construction Ltd., to continue on the steel and con- crete highway overpass and a second overpass across Joseph Creek in the airport road; and with Cran-Kam Constructors Cranbrook.

A few miles of former KC line in the vicinity of Bull River junction with tlie Kootenay upstream are also being raised in an- ticipation of full pondage with work being done by CPK maintenance crews. The new Kootenay bridge tenders have been called. In- dians from St. Mary's Deserve, a crew of eight to ten men, are contracting the right of way fencing between North Star, the Mission and Fort Steele. Other recent Cranbrook rail- way yar'd improvements by tile maintenance department, have substantially increased with southern extension of three tracks to Jimsmith Lake rail- way crossing.
