How long will the construction take?

    Construction is expected to start on June 6, 2022. We estimate that the work will take approximately 45 working days, weather permitting and subject to other delays.

    Will the intersection be closed?

    The intersection will remain open with at least one lane operational in each direction. While we will work to minimize traffic disruptions, please expect delays.

    Will the bus stops be affected?

    During construction, the northbound bus stop may be temporarily relocated if needed to facilitate any curb and sidewalk replacement work. Any relocation will be coordinated with, and communicated by, YRT. 

    Will businesses remain open?

    Access to businesses and properties will be maintained throughout the duration of the project.

    What are the hours of construction?

    Hours of construction will be between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Monday to Friday, and between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays. To perform specific tasks, the contractor may be required to work beyond the designated hours of construction. This will be permitted only if it will provide less overall public inconvenience.

    Is there a recommended detour route?

    If possible, we suggest that motorists take Industrial Parkway to avoid delays.  

    Will downtown street parking be impacted?

    The project is more concentrated on the intersection and that there is minimal parking within the project limits. As such, it is expected that impacts to parking will be very minimal during construction.
