The Ship Channel Bridge will be re-opening July 29, 2013 to single lane vehicle traffic and marine transit. The bridge continues to be available for pedestrian and cyclist use.
The Ship Channel Bridge was closed to vehicle traffic November 12, 2012 to perform critical repairs and maintenance on the bridge and approaches. The bridge will remain open to single lane vehicle traffic only until the City of Toronto completes the remaining repairs.
While the bridge is open to single lane traffic only, traffic signals will be installed and will remain in use while construction continues. Until re-opening on July 29, vehicles may access the south Portlands via the single-lane bridge on Unwin Avenue. Like the Ship Channel Bridge, the bridge on Unwin Avenue can accommodate vehicles up to 63.7 tonnes on five axles. Vehicles will be able to access Unwin Avenue via Leslie Street.
The Toronto Port Authority is committed to providing safe and efficient access for all our stakeholders and the public at large within the Portlands. We continue to work with and assist the City to develop a long term solution for vehicle accessibility to the south port lands.
