Need recon from Toronto

I have heard they are putting up or renovating a bridge about 1-2km south of the Sunnybrook Park on the Don Valley Trail. Has that been completed yet?

I'm sorry if my direction isn't correct as my memory is very rusty.

Thanks.

It's done. The bridge over the tracks but under Don Mills road. I did it about 2 weeks ago.

However the area south of that had massive flooding last week. I don't know if the trail has been cleared up.

When is your visit?

Thank you for the update. I hope you are ok after the flood. My cousin and a friend was stuck in the Subway and road for quite some time.

I won't be visiting until early to mid August so everything should be cleaned up by then.

I came through okay - I stayed at work until the worst of the deluge had passed, and then had a 2 hour bus ride home, instead of 1 hour, due to traffic lights being out, or instead of 45 minutes of biking which I decided not to do due to not wanting to ride through ponds. I had minimal dampness in one part of my basement walls at home which I can fix with exterior grading,
