Posted another article about this yesterday, via theGrid. BlogTO has one too:
Although officials are staying tight-lipped about the details, Helen Noehammer, the City’s Director of Development Engineering, revealed in an email that “a number of deficiencies were identified” during the inspection process. Concord Adex has thus restricted access to the bridge until it can address the inspector’s concerns.
Speculation over at Urban Toronto cites concerns related to the mesh-covering on the bridge and the possibility that the expansion joints pose a tripping hazard, but the City declined to reveal specific problems until staff have a chance to meet with Concord Adex. That meeting is supposed to take place sometime later this week.
