The Old Eastern Avenue Bridge over the River Don in Toronto.

It’s an abandoned Baltimore truss bridge that was constructed in 1933 and disconnected from the road network in 1964 after the opening of the Don Valley Parkway. The new Eastern Avenue bridge lies a little further north up the river.

According to Wikipedia, the City of Toronto considered demolishing the Old Eastern Avenue Bridge but decided it was cheaper to simply maintain it. You pass the west side of the bridge along the Lower Don River Valley Trail.

It’s supposed to be inaccessible, but some cheeky devils have pulled down the fence and scrawled graffiti all over the structure. Obviously, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to explore the abandoned bridge and take some snaps.
