Dufferin Street Bridge update: Closure to Pedestrians & Cyclists Extended

Posted on December 12, 2013

Expected Re-opening to Pedestrians & Cyclists: January 2014

The City of Toronto has successfully completed the demolition of the Dufferin Street Bridge over the Metrolinx/GO Transit Rail Corridor. The bridge demolition took place during a 48 hour complete closure of the Lakeshore West Rail Corridor between November 29, 2013 and December 2, 2013.

The City had planned to open a temporary pedestrian and cyclist bridge immediately following the demolition, but this installation has been delayed. We anticipate that this pedestrian bridge will be installed and opened in January 2014. Two additional temporary modular bridges will be installed to carry vehicular traffic. The temporary vehicular bridges are expected to be installed in February 2014.

During the closure, pedestrians can use Atlantic Avenue to access Exhibition Place.

raffic Restrictions

Vehicular traffic will continue to be required to detour around the closure. Signage advising of the closure of the Dufferin Street Bridge has been placed on the street network to allow motorists to choose alternate routes.

Additional signage to advise pedestrians and cyclists of the closure has been installed.

Your co-operation and patience during the closure period is appreciated.
