Webcam shot of the Kirkwood Avenue Bridge replacement.

600 tonnes of metal and concrete!  One hundred construction workers!  Traffic detours!

You can watch all on Saturday night as crews perform a “rapid replacement” of the 55-year-old Kirkwood Avenue Queensway Bridge. The Ontario Ministry of Transportation has a webcam set up to capture the action.

About those traffic detours - the Queensway will be closed in both directions at Kirkwood from 6pm on Saturday, July 6 to 11:00am on Sunday, July 7, and same thing next weekend too.  On July 13 and 14 the bridge at Carling Avenue will be replaced. You can read more about the detours here…

There is even an officiall hashtag: #417rapidbridge
