The Anne Street bridge over Highway 400 is coming down.
Anne Street will be closed from Edgehill Drive to Donald Street the night of Saturday, May 29 and the bridge will be demolished the following weekend overnight on Saturday, June 5.
Vehicle and pedestrian traffic will be off-limits until the project is complete sometime in Fall 2022.
Detour signs have been installed and public transit detours have been mapped out.
There will be a free transit shuttle for pedestrians that will start the morning of Sunday, May 30 at the foot of the Anne Street hill and over at the Wellington Plaza.
The final transit detour routes will be placed on the morning of Sunday, June 6 until the street is reopened approximately 18-months later. The transit changes will be posted at bus stops and on the city website.
When completed, the Anne Street bridge will have wider sidewalks and will be large enough to accommodate a wider Highway 400 in the future.
Improvements will also be made to the Anne Street/Edgehill Drive and Anne Street/Donald Street intersections.
