The work on replacement of the bridge on King Street East, east of Humber Lea Road will begin on May 15, 2023.
A full road closure will be required to replace the bridge between May 15 – Dec 1, 2023. King Street East from John Street to Humber Lea Road will be closed to all through traffic including pedestrians. Detour signs will be posted and detour routes are shown on the map below.
The reason for the full replacement is that the bridge is in need of structural repairs, and replacing the bridge would have a lower long-term cost than repairing it. The new bridge will also include wider sidewalks that are farther from the traffic lanes, as well as new pedestrian railings.
