The second of Garrison Crossing’s two bridge spans installed

October 15, 2018 in News Releases, Project Updates

The second of Garrison Crossing’s two bridge structures was erected in the early hours of Saturday, October 13.

This stainless steel bridge project is the first of its kind in Canada and is being led by CreateTO on behalf of the City of Toronto. Once completed, the Garrison Crossing pedestrian and cycle bridge will link the park system between Trinity Bellwoods Park in the north and the Fort York grounds and the waterfront in the south.

The 49-metre south bridge structure was lifted into place by a 660-tonne crawler crane beginning at midnight Saturday. The south bridge spans from the south side of the Ordnance Triangle over the Lakeshore West rail corridor and lands in Garrison Common on the Fort York grounds.

The installation of the north bridge span connecting the South Stanley Park extension to the Ordnance Triangle was completed in July.

The erection of the Garrison Crossing bridge is being managed by the Dufferin Construction Company, which was selected by Build Toronto, now part of CreateTO, through a competitive evaluation process to design and build the bridge.
