King-Liberty Pedestrian Cycle Bridge Update
Construction of the King-Liberty bridge is well underway. It will provide a much-needed accessible connection for pedestrians and cyclists over the rail corridor between Western Battery Road and King Street West/Douro Street.
The steel bridge structure is currently being fabricated and painted at the contractor’s facility near Kitchener and is planned to be hoisted into place and installed over the weekend of September 14, 2019. Unfortunately, this is later than originally planned in order to minimize disruption in the community. Once the steel structure has been hoisted into place, the bridge’s concrete deck, glass, security systems, elevators, and electrical connections will be installed.
Although the full opening of the bridge is anticipated for spring of 2020, the City is working with its contractors to identify opportunities for an earlier partial opening for the community.
