Highway 7 - Kitchener to Guelph
I was quite surprised to return home after a week away last night and see the Victoria Bridge still standing!

While listening to 570 news on the way home from work today I learned the MTO delayed the demolition until this weekend.

If I was more of a night owl, I'd really like to go and take photos of it coming down...

Gah, this makes it look way more complicated than a Bruce (or River extension via Wellington) to get to NB 85.  I get the nuances but current plan/situation will hopefully improve

Can't remember, it was 4am something and then a 30 hour window after that. Probably on 570's site.

The Ministry of Transportation has set aside a new 30-hour time frame between 4:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 24th and 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, February 25th to demolish the bridge. During that time, Highway 85 will be fully closed in the area.

Hah, that makes me feel better. I did the loop around the Victoria bridge last Sunday and was pretty sure there was still a bridge there but figured I was just confused and didn't see it properly because I was "distracted" by actually driving.
