Road closures are to remain in place around Trump Tower in downtown Toronto as engineers continue to assess the safety risk posed by a swaying antenna.
The discovery of the unstable antenna led to the closure of Bay Street from King Street to Richmond Street on Monday morning with Adelaide Street also closed eastbound from York Street.
The closure applies to both vehicles and pedestrians.
Police had initially said that the area would reopen to traffic at noon on Tuesday, however the closure now looks set to remain in place into the evening rush.

Meanwhile, Toronto Mayor John Tory has vowed to get to the bottom of what happened at the tower.
He says he wants the owners of the tower, Talon International Development to be held accountable it’s it found that the antenna was not properly built or maintained.
The Mayor has also urged the owners to do a better job of communicating with the city and the public, expressing his concern about the ”considerable cost” and disruption to the city as a result of the shutdown.
