The property holds historical value as the bri
dge was constructed to carry a portion of the 
Grand Trunk Railway and it incorporates abutme
nts from a previous Great Western Railway 
bridge. The Grand Trunk played an important ro
le in Ontario’s development history, and 
Toronto’s railways connected it to
 new markets and contributed si
gnificantly to its growth and 
regional dominance. 
In terms of contextual value, 
this bridge contributes
 to a landscape of 
bridges and underpasses 
along the mouth of the Humber River. As an ear
ly bridge across this portion of the Humber 
(integrating portions of an ev
en earlier bridge), it remains important in supporting the 
character of this area, which 
is defined by connective infrastr
ucture clustered on the Humber, 
traversing green space and industrial land. The br
idge is physically, functionally, visually, and 
historically integrated with its surroundings, as 
it carries track across th
e Humber River. It is 
visually connected to Lake Shore Boulevard 
and The Queensway, and access to the underpass 
is linked to the Humber River Recreational Trail.  

The new span being pushed into position where the crane will move it over to track #1 to be lowered into the Humber.
