To cross the Don River, a new Ontario Line bridge will be added on the north side of the existing rail bridge, with space for tracks going in both directions. These upgrades will be done as part of an early works construction project for the Lower Don Bridge and Don Yard.

The work includes:

  • building a new bridge north of the existing Lower Don Bridge over the Don Valley Parkway and the Don River to accommodate Ontario Line trains;
  • shifting GO tracks in the rail yard west of the bridge to accommodate Ontario Line infrastructure;
  • modifying the existing bridge to accommodate future GO track shifts and new Ontario Line infrastructure; and
  • relocating and protecting utilities and rail signals in the area.

Completing this work in advance of major GO and Ontario Line construction in the area will help to keep the projects on schedule and minimize impacts to GO train customers. 

We are continuing our multi-phased environmental assessment process with the release of the Final Early Works Report for the Lower Don Bridge and Don Yard
