Dufferin Bridge re-opens to traffic

3hPLV_DufferinBridgeFILE_Content.jpgThe Dufferin Street Bridge in Toronto has re-opened for vehicular traffic. The bridge, which is south of Springhurst Avenue and goes over the GO Transit/Metrolinx Rail Corridor, has been closed to traffic since last June.

The purpose of the closure was to ensure public safety. The bridge was scheduled for replacement, but as a result of inspections done in 2013, the City made the decision to expedite the closure and install temporary bridges before the construction of a permanent bridge.

The temporary bridges will remain open to traffic until the permanent bridge is completed in 2019.
