Don Roadway Boulevard (Lever buildings, looking east)
This is Leg #7 of a preliminary walk of the 21 Don Roadway site. This leg (brown line) traveled from the CineSpace driveway down to the LDRT, west along the Trail to the Don Roadway; and then north on Don Roadway to the ramp for northbound DVP; and then onto the boulevard to the east of the Don Roadway and north up to the fence surrounding a disused roadway which travels under the railway bridge - northwest extent of the First Gulf site.
A list of the blogs about each of the 10 Legs of this walk-about are available below, or at the link, (and on the map - see drop-down menu icon, top-left on the map):

This series of photographs documents the view of the site from the boulevard to the west of the site beside the Don Roadway and the on-ramp for northbound DVP. Later I present images of the view of the highways and the river from this vantage point. Lastly I note a manhole cover on the boulevard, and ask if it might be a barrier to a Multi-use path north-south next to the Don Roadway.
