Guess The Bridge's Arrival!

Hey, it’s me, Rocky! Your friendly neighbourhood rock ripping bucket. You may know me from twitter, where I post updates about construction in the Port Lands under the handle @theRockRipper.

Everyone knows I was pretty jealous of the Cherry Street North Bridge stealing my thunder when it came last fall. But not this time. I’m embracing the next bridge’s arrival as if it was my own baby.

To celebrate I’m holding a good ol’ fashioned baby pool. Guessing is now closed! You’ll just have to wait and see when it gets to Toronto!

For more information about the bridges, click here.



The winner will get:

  • Your photo digitally added to a photo of the new bridge and shared on Twitter by me, Rocky @TheRockRipper
  • Lots of fake internet points and bragging rights
  • Virtual tour of the bridge once it’s installed (this will be open to anyone who plays, but the winner will be the VIP for the tour)




Also, I met a lawyer! He was really nice and told me to include these rules for my contest. He said humans sometimes like to read fine print? I don’t get it, but here you go:

Contest Rules

  • The winner will be selected based on the guess that is closest to the actual date and time the bridge docks in the Ship Channel.
