Also came across this in the Transportation Services 2018 Capital Budget doc.

New to the 10-Year Preliminary Capital Plan
The following capital projects are new to the 10-Year Capital Plan:

Glen Road Pedestrian Bridge – Glen Road Pedestrian Bridge extends over Rosedale Valley Road, just east of Sherbourne Street, connecting to Bloor Street East via a bridge and tunnel system. The bridge has experienced significant deterioration, which resulted in an emergency closure in 2014. Rehabilitation work to strengthen the bridge was completed, extending the timeframe to allow for a study to be completed to determine the future of the crossing. It is anticipated that the existing bridge can only remain open until 2019.

A Municipal Class EA is being undertaken to identify the preferred alternative for replacing the bridge. Solutions to address safety concerns in the adjacent tunnel are also being considered. The tunnel work and bridge replacement can be coordinated and delivered under the same contract. Study completion is expected by the end of 2017. $12.630 million in funding is provided in 2019 for replacement of the bridge and implementation of the tunnel.

perfectly timed for the tunnel to rebuilt at the same time as the Bloor Street reconstruction. I think this may have actually been the reason the Bloor Street work got delayed.

Good point, though that of course seems eminently too logical for the City :)
