Don bridge at Queen and King street

Recently called the Time and A Clock Bridge the bridge over the Don river at Queen Street East has a long history, and a few names: Queen Street Viaduct, or Riverside Bridge.

In 1996 the Riverside BIA installed the Time and a Clock series, include the text This River I Step In, Is not The River I Stand in. Then on June 5th, 2015 the bridge, and art, was illuminated every night with programmable colour lighting, thanks to a three-year, $500,000 capital improvement project.

The bridge also stood next to a Toronto landmark that has since moved - the Canadian Pacific Railway Don Station, which is now located in Roundhouse Park.
