Toronto's first stainless steel bridge is finally about to open
Good news pedestrians and cyclists: the long-awaited Garrison Crossing is finally almost finished.
Both are railways that have long separated King and Queen West with almost everything south of Liberty Village.
Check out our Garrison Crossing July update! The project is in its final stages of construction and is targeted to open late summer 2019. #CityBuilding https://t.co/3Lva1bdMhy pic.twitter.com/3IgC96htkc— CreateTO (@_CreateTO) July 17, 2019
The length of the bridge spans the same distance as five football fields.
CreateTO (the city's real estate agency managing the project) announced today that the grading of the new South Stanley Park extension is complete and the granular base for the trail in Ordnance Park is in the final stages.
Coming soon. New parks and new pedestrian bridges connecting Fort York & and the waterfront to King West. https://t.co/oxYmVvmQ9R— Joe Cressy (@joe_cressy) July 17, 2019
They also announced that the paved stone landing from Garrison Common into the South Stanley Park extension is finished, the stainless steel barrier mesh has been installed, and soon the bike rail and wooden handrails will be too.
The installation of street furniture and signage, as well as the lighting on the bridges, has yet to be completed.
Garrison Crossing is the only bridge in Canada made of stainless steel.
The project is set to be entirely completed by the end of the summer.
