Lego Challenge: Bridge Edition – the Glendale Lift Bridge

Welcome back to the Lego Challenge! It’s been a year since we took on building some beautiful examples of built heritage and lost architecture that make up the streetscapes of downtown St. Catharines.

This year, we’re looking at the important engineering structures that join our communities together across the City: bridges. We’ll build the new Burgoyne Bridge, the Garden City Skyway, the Henley Bridge, the Homer and Glendale Bridges over the Welland Canal, and the CN Rail Bridge over 12 Mile Creek.

Get your Lego and join in the challenge. Your bridge doesn’t have to look like ours. Make it your own and have fun!
