Metrolinx has purchased the Hardwood Flooring Center and the grey and white house at 2417 Weston Road, just north of the railway bridge near the Superstore. According to Vanessa Thomas, Media Relations Team Lead, they bought the properties because the bridge was too low. Lowering the road would make it difficult to access the properties.
Both properties were purchased through “amicable negotiations”, and 2417 Weston Road is currently being used a staging area.
According to Thomas, when the construction is complete, the new bridge will be safer. It will be wider and will not have a centre pier. It will also have better sight lines and a bicycle path.
Thanks to the tipsters! Keep ’em coming!
