The east half of the Bloor Street West bridge in Toronto’s west end has been demolished and will be rebuilt to support service increases on the Barrie GO Line, according to Metrolinx officials. GO Trains continued to run on the west mainline track during construction.

Work will transform the GO rail from a rush-hour service to a more frequent, two-way, all-day rapid transit experience.

Work was completed faster than expected, during the May long weekend, allowing Bloor Street to re-open a day earlier than originally planned.

Work continues on the project this summer, including rebuilding the abutments and installing the new bridge span, to bring Barrie residents one step closer to two-way, all-day GO.

The latest construction notices are posted under Corridor Work – Barrie Line.
