You'll notice something new and shiny under the Gardiner by Monday morning.

This weekend workers will begin to install a bridge which will give pedestrians a new way to cross Lake Shore Boulevard after exiting the Air Canada Centre.

The transparent bridge will be situated below the Gardiner and have a glass-like feel.

Principal Architect John White of WZMH Architects spoke with John Downs on Newstalk 1010 and said the bridge will not only be extremely useful, but also easy on the eyes.

“There’s a quality of light that you have down at the waterfront... it sparkles, it’s brighter, it’s warmer… we wanted the bridge… to capture that quality of light," he said.

White explained that it will be a completely enclosed path that will allow pedestrians easy access to the waterfront.

The bridge will be ready to use in October.
