Photography Drive Bridge Demolition

February 5, 2016

What is happening?

The first step in the construction of the Mount Dennis Station requires the demolition of the Photography Drive Bridge deck, which was closed in 2002. The Photography Drive Bridge is located over Eglinton Avenue West between Black Creek Drive and Weston Road. Eglinton will be closed between these streets during the demolition.


  • Beginning in February 2016, a crew will move equipment on-site and prepare the bridge deck for demolition.
  • Toronto Hydro will remove street lamps and reuse them elsewhere.
  • Asphalt, concrete and steel girders will be removed from the bridge and recycled.
  • Jersey barriers will be installed to redirect traffic and to protect workers.


  • The bridge demolition will be from 9 pm on Friday, February 19, for 50 continuous hours to 11 pm on Sunday, February 21.
  • Demolition could be rescheduled due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.


  • Our crew will be visible along Eglinton Avenue West in the vicinity of Black Creek Drive and Weston Road.

Traffic and Transit Details:

  • For the safety of workers, motorists, and residents, Eglinton Avenue West between Black Creek Drive and Weston Road will be closed during the bridge demolition.
