Being old is one thing, being above capacity is another.
Old overpasses can be reinforced and can last, but replacing every single overpass would turn Gateway into a white elephant IMO.
I believe the only ones being completely replaced are the ones with capacity and design issues: Brunette, Cape Horn, 152nd, 160th and 176th. The exit lanes at Grandview, Willingdon, Canada/Kensington/Sprott are being reconfigured as well.
Gaglardi, 1st Ave, Hastings, McGill etc. don't need to be replaced IMO.
