Falling Ice Closes Expressway

The Gardiner Expressway in Toronto has been closed for the second day because of the danger of ice falling from the nearby CN Tower.

Direct sunlight then began melting the ice. Helped by the wind gusts, chunks of ice began breaking off the frozen concrete walls of the tower, causing great danger to people and vehicles below.

As a result, commuter traffic crept in and out of the city after the police closed the Gardiner Expressway in the morning and kept it closed throughout the evening rush hour.
