During my coast-to-coast road trip this summer (I’ll have more posts on the trip over the coming weeks) I crossed over a wide variety of bridges. Some of them were remarkable (Lions Gate Bridge in Vancouver, Laviolette Bridge in Trois-Riveres) while others were simply charming (Finlay Bridge in Medicine Hat, Broadway Bridge in Saksatoon).
It got me thinking about which of Toronto’s bridges I’d consider as some of my favourites. I think the Humber Bay Pedestrian Bridge would top my list, followed closely by the Bloor/Price Edward Viaduct.
So I put it to our readers: tell us which bridges you like/love in Toronto and the reasons for your affection. Your input will help us with a feature in the upcoming issue of the magazine. If you need to jog your memory, Wikipedia has a comprehensive listing of the city’s overpasses.
