Laneway Closure during Concrete Pour at Forest Hill Station Aug 26

What Work is Taking Place?

A concrete pour will take place at Forest Hill Station on August 26, 2020 starting as early as 11:00 a.m. for approximately five (5) hours. The concrete will form the station's invert slab underground. The invert slab will flatten the bottom of the tunnel so that track can eventually be laid.  

What to Expect

Concrete pumps will be placed within work zones and several concrete trucks will deliver concrete to the site each hour. To allow for continuous turning of the mixer and discharging of concrete, concrete trucks must remain running. Noise from construction can be expected.
