Construction on new Eaton Centre pedestrian bridge underway (PHOTOS)

You may have noticed things looking a bit different on Queen Street West at Yonge.

The pedestrian bridge connecting the Toronto Eaton Centre to Hudson’s Bay was demolished over the long weekend. The bridge was removed to make way for a brand new pedestrian walkway connecting the mall to both Hudson’s Bay and Saks Fifth Avenue flagship locations.

So the street, which has had a pedestrian bridge for years, now looks like this.

But it won’t be for too long, as construction is now underway for the new bridge. And to get us excited, the Toronto Eaton Centre shared a (very well produced) video of the demolition. Seriously, it’s a great video.

And check out some photos of the soon-to-be bridge, which is expected to be in place later this fall.
