^With the bridge no longer having to bear the same load, it's likely still economically life-extendable for another 50 years. A new span would cost a fair bit.

I would leave it alone, love it or hate it.

Don't tell me that they decided to keep this bridge with the centre support because of very, very heavy mass of the bicycles and people that would end up on top of the bridge?

Personally, I would replace it with something lighter without the centre support.

I'm pretty sure they decided to keep it because it is already there and cheap to keep. But, some day it will reach end of life and a sleek replacement is almost guaranteed.

For the love of God, is there actually one thing that these graffitti people cant tag?

Unfortunately I think these pillars are going to be filled with them when all is said and done.

Anything that is one of the 50 shades of Toronto grey could end up as a target.

Some update shots of the Lansdowne bridge over Bloor. Still have to fix the south sidewalk and most likely be rebuilt wider after track 1 bridge in place 2023. Same will happen to the north side.

Looks like the westbound lane will have higher clarence that the eastbound lane under the new bridges,

You can stop it as long as you cover them with these

You got to be joking??? Have you seen how high taggers have got to, to do their tagging?? This area sees a lot of foot traffic to stop taggers, but the rail corridor is wide open to be not seen.

The top of the barrier and the beams will be tag in not time if ML put them up along with the lower section.

If you catch them, they pay the full cost to clean their tag, huge fine and 500 hours on community service that requires their hands to get dirty and sore.
