The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure engaged with local stakeholders who rely on the bridge the most, including industrial users, local residents and businesses, and the public.
Input Leads to Action
Phase 2 will build on the engagement from last fall and continues the ongoing technical work. Community members will be able to see how their input is shaping concepts and ideas towards a long-term solution for the bridge. There is also an opportunity to contribute non-technical feedback that will inform the work underway to develop concepts for the future of Taylor Bridge.
