Bathurst Street Bridge

Bathurst Street Bridge

The Bathurst Street Bridge in Toronto, Canada carries motor vehicles and Toronto Transit Commission's streetcars along Bathurst Street over the railway tracks south of Front Street. The steel Truss bridge was built in 1903 and carried traffic along Lake Shore Road (now Lake Shore Boulevard) over the Humber Bay River. It was re-located in 1916 to Bathurst and re-aligned (Bathurst Street was at an angle south of Front Street) in 1931.

The Queen Street Bridge and King Street Bridge are other examples of steel bridges in Toronto.
