Construction Heads Up Part 4: Trenching and Falling Concrete

21 Jul

The revitalization project is beginning to become more obvious as orange cones and construction workers make increasingly frequent appearances along the Harbourfront. To help you get the most of your bright, sunny July days, here is your weekly update on what to expect in terms of traffic for the next few days.

  • During the week of July 23-27 there will be some trenching activity at the south-west corner of the Harbourfront Centre. To facilitate this, there will be single lane restrictions for approximately two days.
  • Bell’s line crew continue their manhole work (as mentioned in my previous posting) and will also be creating localized traffic lane constructions – which will be marked by orange cones.

You can find the original construction notification here from the Waterfront Toronto website.

Also happening in the world of traffic news:
A few days ago, there were some TTC streetcar changes as city works dealt with concrete falling from the Gardiner Expressway. Some news reports implicated the extreme heat the city experienced as being a prime reason for the incident, but there are several possible causes. With so many hot days sure to come this summer, we’ll keep our eyes and ears peeled for news about more sudden streetcar route changes and shuttle bus services related to Gardiner Expressway concrete crashes.
