  • Work is expected to begin as early as October 19th and should take approximately four months to complete.
  • Work will occur between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.
  • The contractor may not always work during the permitted hours, but may do so at its discretion.
  • Work may be rescheduled due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

What to Expect

  • Crews will remove existing traffic signals on the four corners of each intersection, followed by installation of temporary CCTV and new signal poles on the four corners.
  • Crossings will remain open for pedestrians.
  • Nearby businesses and residents can expect noise from trucks and other construction equipment used to perform construction activities.

Traffic and Pedestrian Impacts

  • A minimum of two through lanes of traffic will be maintained while the work is being performed.
  • Paid-Duty Police Officers will be present during this work.
  • Existing crosswalk and sidewalk closures will remain in effect.
  • Please watch for signs directing pedestrians to alternate routes.

TTC Details

  • TTC bus stops in the work area may be relocated for the safety of transit riders. Please watch for posted signs indicating the adjusted locations.
