The Gardiner

The elevated highway running near the Lake Ontario shoreline through the south part of the City of Toronto is called the Gardiner Expressway. Construction started in 1955 and lately the weekends have been taken over by closures, road repairs and bridge work. You can see the lake (ha ha) just to the left of this solid wall of beautiful condos (shown in the tilt-shift photo above). At night the road becomes a river of light.
In spite of the talk of tolls and the hassle of maintenance repairs and until such time as the price of gas and shortage of fossil fuels make the entire installation unnecessary I am glad it brings me into Toronto.
Sometimes you can get a great view of the massive infrastructure that gives a feeling of awe for the amount of work that it took to build the magic carpet roadway.
