The Bridging Project transformed an east Toronto six-lane traffic bridge on Lawrence Avenue East (between Orton Park and Kingston-Galloway) into the connector between the two neighbourhoods. Mural Routes collaborated with The Amazing Place, Jumblies Theatre, Scarborough Arts Council and Toronto Culture – Arts Services on The Bridging Project, bringing arts and environmental activities to the Kingston/Galloway/Orton Park community.
