Pottery Rd. Closed August 27-28 for New Trail Bridge Placement

The Pottery Road new pedestrian/cycling bridge is being placed the weekend of August 27-28.

Recreational trail users heading south from Don Mills will be rerouted back north to avoid the conflict with the cranes while they are placing the bridge. 

This bridge placement unfortunately requires that Pottery Road will be closed during the time required to place the bridge.  At Bayview Avenue intersection with Pottery Road expect a full barrel closure of both north and south bound turning lanes to Pottery Road.  From Broadview Avenue only local traffic travelling to Todmorden Mills and Fantasy Farm will have access to proceed.  Police will be on site to monitor the cranes from both sides, as well as at the Pottery – Broadview intersection.

Recreational trail users heading south from Don Mills will be rerouted back north to avoid the conflict with the cranes while they are placing the bridge.

As soon as the bridge placement is complete the roads will be opened, but please plan your routes to avoid this closure on the weekend of August 27-28

Here is an artist rendering of what the new bridge will look like. 160808_Bridge-Approach-web

Photos of the actual bridge in place will follow soon. Future photos may or may not include a kid with a yellow balloon.

Have a great weekend.
