Construction Heads Up Part 10: Construction Cameras!

3 Dec

It’s pretty much a given that no one likes traffic delays or breaking out of their routine to avoid construction, but the techy dork in me can’t help but think the Queens Quay Webcam for your mobile device is kind of  nifty.

There are two cameras in our area, one facing West and another facing East – both of which are updated every 15 minutes. So while you are not watching everything in real time I’m a sucker for stop motion and this has that sort of feel to it. You can even go backwards and watch construction activities from previous days.

And if you’re curious about how the parking lot next to us is doing, there’s a camera for that as well!

For these blogs, we’ve been focusing on construction updates that are specific to our area, but if you want to get the larger picture of how the Waterfront is slowly transforming, you can explore other areas like West Don Lands and East Bayview. 

In case you just can’t wait to see what these cameras will be recording later in the week, here is another heads up on road activities for the week of December 3rd – 7th:

  • traffic will be on the SOUTH SIDE of Queens Quay between Say Street and the 55/65 driveway at Harbour Square
  • After the 55/65 driveway, vehicles will transition back to the Northside of the street
  • in the evening, road will be plated and one lane of Westbound traffic will be open on the NORTHSIDE. The SOUTHSIDE lanes will be CLOSED and re-opened in the morning
  • Flagmen and duty police will be on the street around the 10/20 Bay parking lot and the Ellis Don construction site to help direct traffic and local access will be maintained from the Northside
  • Pedestrian access between Bay and York Street will be maintained at all times

As always, if you’re interested in reading more about the construction activities for this week and what is planned to follow, you can check out the most recent construction notice here.
