The older National Bridge Inventory used to list railroad overpasses, but I checked and it does not give vertical clearance.

You would need to either contact the owner of the road underneath the bridge who should have this data for trucks and emergency services, or contact the owner of the railroad bridge, which appears to be Canadian Pacific. https://www.cpr.ca/en/

I am looking for the height on this bridge. Is there anyone who can help me get this information? It is not on this listing and the bridge is not labeled either.

Thank you.
