Heritage Consultant, Donald Luxton, will discuss the scope of rehabilitation work on the aging concrete structure of this 1932 landmark Art Deco bridge, as well as the addition of new street lighting, restoration of the original pedestrian lighting, permanent bike lanes and the design that was selected to add fencing on the bridge.
