Effectively immediately, the bridge over the Humber Bay stormwater pond has been closed. Toronto Water has been monitoring the water levels in the area as a result of the heavy rainfall and resulting increased water levels. Staff found that the level of the lake has risen to a point where the floating walkway is no longer moored to the bottom of the pond and essentially free floating.
Toronto Water considers this an unsafe condition for public use of the walkway and it has been temporarily closed in order to remedy the situation. Staff will be working on making adjustments to the piles that hold the walkway in place, and are hopeful the walkway can be re-opened this week
