article imageFalling Gardiner Expressway chunk misses car

By Brandigal (Donna)     Jan 28, 2007 in Environment
A piece of the Gardiner Expressway broke off narrowly missing a car below.
The Gardiner Expressway has been under controversy recently because citizens and politicians want to demolish it or move it underground because they say it cuts off the city from its waterfront.
So now it is in the news for another reason.
Part of it broke off narrowly missing a car below. It was the size of a basketball and it caused minor damage to the car as it was hit from pieces that shattered when it hit the ground. No one was injured.
The road beneath was closed down for a short time till investigators made sure it was not going to collapse. The road was reopened.
They say the cause was likely the freezing and thawing of ice beneath the overpass.
