Bridge Replacement along the Queensway

Mostly of interest for the news that the bridges will be replaced. I wonder if they’ll be able to use that build the bridge nearby and then move it overnight into position technique, last seen on the Island Park/Queensway bridge.

Dear Neighbours,

The Ministry of Transportation has announced a Notice of Study Commencement for the preliminary design and environmental assessment study for the rehabilitation or replacement of bridges at 12 locations along the Queensway from Holland Avenue to O’Connor Street.

This study will determine the appropriate strategy for the rehabilitation or replacement of the bridges; several options will be reviewed for each bridge including structural and construction staging options in order to minimize disruption to the Highway. The Ministry is seeking public comment as the study gets underway. I encourage you to share your ideas and priorities to ensure that this project best serves our community.

Feedback can be sent to:

Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can ever be of any assistance to you.
