Ontario Line Enabling Works Continue

  • Work continues as Metrolinx prepares for the future Ontario Line alignment.

This segment of uncovering utilities, known as daylighting along with be accompanied by drilling activity over the next few months. More information will be shared here as updates arise.

    Over the next few months, area residents will continue to experience excavation/drilling activity, with continued presence of dump truck routing and material movement in and around the work zone limits, and along Mill Street between Bayview Avenue and Tannery Road, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. We ask residents, motorists and those using the multi-use trail to exercise increased caution when travelling through this area.

Union Station Enhancement Project – Upcoming Work

  • Neighbours close to the Union Station East Rail Corridor, from Sherbourne to the Don Yard, continue to experience increased construction activity, although with some work shifting into different hours, and others deferred to early 2023. Borehole drilling continues with cable containment and conduit installation work over several weeks. An increased presence at Sherbourne Street will continue into 2023 as Metrolinx prepares to demolish the signal bridge. Work crews will keep overnight impacts to a minimum. More information will be provided as work continues and upcoming dates are confirmed. We thank you for your continued patience and understanding of this necessary work. For more information, call 416-202-5100 or email [email protected].

Track Slab Demolition

  • From July 2022 to early 2023, platforms 24 to 27, including track slabs are being demolished to make way for excavation for the new south passenger concourse (which will span 325 meters from York to Bay Streets) and two new wider platforms that will be installed as part of USEP. Larger machinery will be required for this work, which may result in louder construction related noise during day-time hours. Residents and businesses near the work site can expect to hear noise caused by trucks and other equipment. Every effort will be made to minimize disruptions. Removals at concourse level will be inside closed hoarding to mitigate noise/dust. For more information, call 416-202-6911 or email [email protected].
