Glen Road Pedestrian Bridge & Tunnel: Public Consultation

Categories: News

The Glen Road Pedestrian Bridge is deteriorating and is in need of major improvements.

The City’s Transportation Services Division has undertaken a study to identify options to address the deteriorating condition of the Glen Road Pedestrian Bridge spanning Rosedale Valley Road, and the adjoining pedestrian tunnel that connects to the north and south sides of Bloor Street East.

 

Public Information Centre #2

We invite you to attend a Public Information Centre to learn about this study being undertaken by the City’s Transportation Services Division, and the next steps in the environmental assessment (EA) process. Details are as follows:

Date:   Tuesday, October 24, 2017
Time:   Drop-in anytime from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Location:  St. Paul’s Church,   227 Bloor St. E,  Toronto  (wheelchair accessible)

 

Study Recommendations

Technical analysis and stakeholder consultation has resulted in a preliminary recommended design:

  • Replace the bridge in the same location with a wider, steel girder incline leg bridge type (very similar to the current structure)
  • Replace and widen the tunnel to the west (following the current alignment)

 

Below are artist renderings of the proposed bridge design concept.

Wide bridge with modern railing.

Artist's rendering of recommend structure type: steel girder with inclined steel legs

View more drawings and imagery of the designs at the October 24th public drop-in event.

An Environmental Study Report will be prepared at the end of the process and be made available for public review.

Further public consultation will be conducted during the Detail Design phase of the project following completion of this Class EA study.
