Bridges Make Connections

Cee's Fun Foto Challenge Bridges
Dutch's Tuesday Photo Challenge Connections


TORONTO ON CANADA


Let's start with the Humber Bay Bridge right outside our door!

The Humber Bay Arch Bridge (also known as the Humber River Arch Bridge, the Humber River Pedestrian Bridge, or the Gateway Bridge) is a pedestrian and bicycle through arch bridge south of Lake Shore Boulevard West, Canada. Completed in the mid-1990s, the bridge is part of the Martin Goodman Trail and is 139 metres (456 ft) in length, with a clear span of 100 metres (330 ft) over the mouth of the Humber River to protect the environmental integrity of the waterway.


The stunning, 125-metre bright-yellow pedestrian bridge, designed by Chilean artist Francisco Gazitua, connects the Concord City Place neighbourhood and Front Street West, between Spadina and Bathurst. Built in 2011, Puente de Luz – “the bridge of light” – is popularly known as “the yellow bridge.” It’s cyclist-friendly, too.




This pedestrian bridge connects the Toronto Eaton Centre to the Hudson’s Bay and Saks Fifth Avenue flagship locations.

  4. Dropped by from your comment on Jeannas blog, where you talked about saying “hey look” ... that’s me too. And these bridges would definitely have me exclaiming that exact thing. Glad you take pictures of all you *see*.

  5. I've seen that Humber Bay bridge passing by, but I'd love to walk across it. It really is a work of art. I believe the Eaton one is that new one that replaced the old one, if I'm not mistaken.
