quote from MSN blog link above showing alternate route here

friday august 1 2014 as of 11 am

Alternate route:

Drivers heading to Toronto from south of the bridge can take Eastport Drive, which runs under the Skyway bridge. Traffic was moving slowly on Eastport at 6:30 a.m. ET Friday. Another option for northbound drivers is to exit the QEW at Centennial Parkway or the Redhill Valley Parkway, and make their way through Hamilton to connect with northbound Highway 403.

GO Transit

GO Transit’s Route 12, which travels from Niagara Falls, Ont., to Toronto’s Union Station, continues to be delayed up to an hour Friday morning, according to the agency’s most recent update. Train and bus connections are happening at Aldershot instead of Burlington. That’s not the only route affected. Anne Marie Aikins, a spokeswoman for the agency, said, “We’ve got a number of bus delays as a result of the closure, Gardiner [Expressway] renovations and long weekend traffic.”

Rush-hour traffic on Gardiner and Lakeshore are worsened by the bridge closure, too, she said. She advised commuters to bring their patience. “Long weekend is almost here!” she added.

Skyway Bridge closed until further notice
