Circle Drive North Bridge Rehabilitation Project
Start date: February 28, 2023
End date: October, 2023
A major rehabilitation on both sides of the 40-year-old Circle Drive North Bridge is underway. Two-way traffic will be maintained throughout construction, but for the majority of the summer, one side of the bridge will be closed to traffic while work is happening on the opposite side.
Work includes barrier replacements and other repairs to ensure the structures remain safe and structurally sound for years to come. Work is not expected to have an impact the pedestrian bridge underneath.
University Bridge Arch Repairs

End date: To be determined
The University Bridge will be undergoing arch repairs this summer. The work will include repairing the concrete on the first span over the river, east of Spadina Crescent, and repairing the bridge drainage. Temporary lane closures on University Bridge will occur, but two way traffic will be maintained at all times. Pedestrian traffic will not be impacted.
