Now that the new Commissioners Street Bridge is open in Toronto's Port Lands over the new riverbed of the Don River where it will enter Lake Ontario, the portion of Villiers Street that still stands in the way of Don River water flowing into the new path is being removed. In this drone image by UrbanToronto Forum contributor hawc, the old Don River can be seen on the left side of the photo, with the new armour-stone-lined new path to the right. In the middle, Villiers Street's old asphalt is all gone, and the muddy ground below where it was is now being dug up and transported away.
