The original four-lane highway bridge was built in 1936, but the structure was widened in 1959 to permit an extra highway lane in each direction. The inside arches are part of the original 1936 structure, the outer arches were added in 1959.

Left - The Bronte Service Road once had full interchange access to the Queen Elizabeth Way. After the Burloak Drive Interchange was completed in the early 1980s, the Bronte Service Road Interchange quickly declined in importance. Over the past few years, three of the four access ramps to the Queen Elizabeth Way have been closed off. Until the interchange was fully closed in 2008, traffic could only exit from the Hamilton-bound Queen Elizabeth Way to the Bronte Service Road. Note the closed ramps and new security fence on the Toronto-bound side of the interchange.
