King-Liberty Pedestrian/Cycle Bridge, Toronto, ON

The King-Liberty Pedestrian Cycle Bridge finally opened this week and Gord and I checked it out this afternoon.  It's been in the works for a couple of years.

It is over the Metrolinx Kitchener/Milton Rail Corridor and spans south from just south of King Street W at Douro Street to Western Battery Road in Liberty Village. This new bridge provides a convenient and more direct route from Liberty Village to King Street West between Atlantic Avenue and Strachan Avenue.  Before the bridge opened, there were two convoluted routes via Atlantic Avenue Strachan Avenue to get from King Street W to Liberty Village.  It currently has pedestrian access only but eventually there will be an elevator operating later this summer.

We entered it from the north side on Douro Street.
