Steele's Ave (Toronto) But everybody observes five-mile speed limit sign on Steele's Ave (shown) east of Leslie St. They have to, or they'll break a spring on "temporary" Bailey bridge over central branch of Don. There is no apparent reason why the other sign should be there. But small concrete bridge was weakened by Hazel Hurricane floods and has not been repaired. 1955. Toronto; Bailey Bridge, Steeles Ave. East. Accession#: 55360-2

Bayview Ave, (Toronto ) Contrariwise there is no speed limit sign at bridge on Bayview Ave, just south of Steele's Ave. though it is strictly a one lane bridge. Further south Bayview has been Surfaced and could easily be turned into a four-lane thoroughfare. 1955. Toronto; Bayview Avenue, one-lane bridge south of Steeles. Accession#: 55360-4
