Toronto's Bridges: Charles Sauriol Bridge

We'll finish our exploration of arch bridges in Toronto with a look at another reinforced concrete through arch. The Charles Sauriol Bridge is similar to yesterday's Pottery Road Bridge, except the concrete hangers aren't flared, there's a sidewalk extending outside of the arch, and the ends of the arch are protected with short, decorative walls.

This bridge carries drivers across the Don River to the parking lot for the Charles Sauriol Conservation Reserve. It also carries bicyclists across the river and back onto the Don River Bike Trail. The trail is about 14 km in length from Lake Ontario to Edwards Gardens and goes over and under a variety of interesting bridges. More information on the trail can be obtained at:
