Very early Saturday morning, at about 2 AM, two 500 ton cranes lifted into place the southern half of the new pedestrian and bicycle bridge which will soon link CityPlace's western half to the rest of the city. Named "Puente de Luz" by its Chilean designed Francisco Gazitua, the northern half of the structure is planned to be lifted into place in September. Several UrbanToronto members were on hand to watch and record the lift. Let's take a look at the recent progress.
