Humber Bay Arch Bridge
This is the pedestrian/bike bridge that was visible in yesterday's shot of the lakeshore, taken from a pathway that runs down below the bridge itself. The bridge is about 450 ft long and spans the Humber River as it empties into Lake Ontario and it carries the "Waterfront Trail" which will eventually go all the way along the north shore of the lake. The part of the trail in Toronto is called the "Martin Goodman Trail" and it is the most popular bike and pedestrian trail in the city. The bridge was designed by Montgomery & Sisam Architects and was finished in 1994. I love the snake motifs on the lower supports!
