Ship Channel Bridge Reopens

The Ship Channel Bridge, located on Cherry Street, has re-opened to single lane vehicle traffic and full commercial marine use.  
The Ship Channel Bridge is now open for single lane vehicle traffic, full commercial marine use and pedestrian and cyclist use. The lifting system repairs and testing were completed on September 10, 2013. The Toronto Port Authority has also provided traffic control lights for the single lane vehicle traffic to ensure public safety.
The Toronto Port Authority regrets any inconvenience caused by the necessary construction; however, the safe operation and use of the bridge is and will continue to be our prime concern.
The Ship Channel Bridge, constructed in 1931, was closed to vehicle traffic on November 12, 2012 due to structural deficiencies and to perform critical repairs to the trunnion assemblies.
The Toronto Port Authority will continue to work with and assist the City of Toronto to ensure the safety and viability of the Ship Channel Bridge. We would also like to thank the community for their continued patience and understanding during the repair and testing process.
