Queen and Dufferin/Then and Now Update

After nearly 115 years Dufferin Street has be re connected with itself north of Queen..
When the original subway was built in 1897, Dufferin was severed at Queen to accommodate the underpass.. Last week the renovations were finished and traffic was able to cross Queen and move north. The cost of this new tunnel was $40,000,000. The original cost of the subway in 1897 was $20,000.00.
