City installs new pedestrian bridge at St. Lawrence Market
The City of Toronto will install a new pedestrian bridge on Sunday, March 17 at
approximately 12:30 p.m. to link the South St. Lawrence Market to nearby
underground parking.

The 70-foot-long bridge will span Jarvis Street midway between Front Street
East and the Esplanade. It will weigh approximately 40,000 pounds and is being
installed by Somerville Construction. The section of Jarvis Street affected by
the installation will be closed from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.

"This bridge is good for the market," said Jorge Carvalho, manager of the St.
Lawrence Market. "It will alleviate long-term concerns regarding the lack of
parking and connect the market directly to underground parking so that shoppers
can walk safely to the market shops and more easily move shopping parcels from
the market to their cars."

The South St. Lawrence Market is at 95 Front St. E.
