Bentway Bridge & Landing
The Bentway Bridge will provide a new, safe, way for cyclists and pedestrians to cross Fort York Boulevard and improve access to The Bentway, Fort York National Historic Site, and emerging commercial destinations to the east. The project will build on the connectivity that the Garrison Crossing bridges provide and offer unique vistas into the National Historic Site.
The Landing plazas will result in new public spaces for informal and coordinated gatherings, public art presentations, celebrations, and recreation spaces.
Located at the eastern side of The Bentway, the new bridge will add connections to the public parks in the area, such as the planned Garrison Creek Park, June Callwood Park, and Centennial Park.
Bathurst Crossing is a critical east-west connection that will unlock possibilities on either side of Bathurst. Many pedestrians and cyclists use this crossing informally to access privately owned public spaces (POPS) to the west and commercial spaces to the east. The at-grade crossing should be formalized as an extension of Housey St. to ensure the safety of all users.
