Saskatoon’s historic Traffic Bridge goes out with a bit of a boom tomorrow morning at 9 am. Who doesn’t remember the hair-raising descent down Victoria, inhaling as you hit the base of the skinny bridge desperately hoping no one was coming in the other direction? A car, okay, that was one thing, but a TRUCK? You dared not exhale, certain that extra volume of molecules you introduced would close the minute breath of space between the two vehicles as they passed. Clipping side mirrors was a looming certainty! Another bit of Saskatoon’s history bows down to the blasting caps. Two of our kids had their Traffic Bridge wide-eyed driving rite of passage. Sad to see it go. What a big change for Saskatoon’s iconic downtown river landscape. Wonder what the new one will look like?
