Leslie Street Spit Floating Pedestrian Swing Bridge to be Removed Pending Necessary Structural Repair on February 2, 2021

Toronto (January 29, 2021) – Beginning on Tuesday, February 2, PortsToronto will be removing the Leslie Street Spit floating pedestrian swing bridge in order to complete necessary structural repairs. For pedestrian safety, access to this area will be prohibited during the rehabilitation phase, and will resume upon completion of this project in April 2021.
The Leslie Street Spit floating pedestrian bridge serves to secure the third Confined Disposal Facility (CDF) via silt curtain that is installed on the bottom of the bridge, and to provide safe pedestrian traffic access to the endikement roadway leading to the east headlands. Rehabilitation of the bridge is necessary to prevent unplanned maintenance/repair work and to ensure a safe environment for park users.
PortsToronto and Toronto Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) are co-hosting a public webinar on Thursday, February 4 at 6:30 p.m. to discuss the bridge repair and other items pertaining to the Leslie Street Spit and Tommy Thompson Park. The public is encouraged to join this webinar and information can be found here.
