I didn't see anything in the Spec today, but yesterday a truck traveling northbound on the Skyway lost a trailer that was being towed and the trailer made it over the railing, then fell to the ground below. The trailer looked like it was equipment for sandblasting and vacuum removal.
The Port Authority has big plans for the Canal area, they want to move Eastport Dr. to beside the Skyway, with objects of all shape and sizes flying off the highway, it is not a good idea.

And thats not all!

And did you know that the QEW will be widened in the near future and traffick will be detoured onto Eastport Dr. Also Burlington St. will be widened and traffick will be diverted up Parkdale to Barton and down Woodward. Look out folks.

The Port Authority want to slow down Eastport Dr. traffic with round-abouts and detours, now there's more. Great. :sure: About a week back the Skyway north bound lanes were closed due to an accident and minor spill, the traffic was backed up to Van Wagners and beyond. Eastport was moving nicely because it was designed for closures on the QEW, again look out folks.
