OVERNIGHT WEEKEND WORK – JUNE 14-16, JUNE 28-30, JULY 5-7 – GO TRANSIT TRACK RELOCATION

 
juin 6, 2019

 

What work is taking place?

As part of the ongoing GO Transit Track relocation works in the rail corridor, three weekends of overnight work will be required. Crews will be working overnight during the weekends of June 14th – 16th, June 28th – 30th, and July 5th – 7th. Diversion track construction work involves grading the existing ground, relocating the existing track panels, saw-cutting and drilling rail, as well as surfacing, ballast placement/regulating, and thermite welding. Portions of the work will require compaction by means of a mechanical roller causing vibrations.

 Three weekends of overnight work will be required to complete this phase of work.

  • On Friday June 14th, work will occur 24 hours a day starting at 8:30pm through until Monday June 17th.
  • On Friday June 28th, work will occur 24 hours a day starting at 8:30pm through until Monday July 1st.
  • On Friday July 5th, work will occur 24 hours a day starting at 8:30pm through until Monday July 8th.
  • Work may be rescheduled due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

What to Expect

  • Nearby residents and businesses can expect noise in the area caused by saw-cutting, drilling rail, surfacing, ballast placement/regulating, thermite welding, and other construction equipment as well as dust from drilling activity and debris removal.
  • Truck traffic entering and exiting the work zone, and travelling through nearby streets can be expected due to the new haul routes and access points.
