A Mississauga pedestrian bridge was completely demolished last month — but a new one is on the way.

The Ogden Avenue Pedestrian Bridge replacement project started on March 18, and the QEW was closed from 9 p.m. on March 18 to 10 a.m. on March 19 to demolish the bridge.

The bridge replacement is one of many Ministry of Transportation upgrades planned in a four-year project on the QEW from east of Cawthra Road to west of Etobicoke Creek.

The project started in 2022 with the construction of the new South Service Road East of Ogden Avenue. The work is expected to be complete in 2026.

The pedestrian bridge came down in one night but the new bridge will take several months to complete.

Construction on the bridge will continue through the spring and summer. It is expected to be completed in late August 2023.

Access to and across the bridge, which crosses the QEW between Ogden Avenue and Insley Road, will not be available until the project is complete.

In addition to road closures, nearby residents can expect “higher than normal noise levels” from construction. Some of the work will be completed at night and on weekends.
