The extreme heat is making the Gardiner crumble again

This morning a “significant” chunk of concrete fell from the Gardiner Expressway—the fifth time in three months—forcing Bathurst to close between Fort York and Lake Shore. A city engineer said this week’s scorching temperatures could have caused movement in the high beams, loosening up the piece that fell. We no longer feel like weaklings for wavering in the heat: if it makes a highway beam buckle (or a TTC track bend), surely mere humans were not meant to withstand it. [Toronto Star]
