What Work is Taking Place?

Crews at the Rail Corridor continue west Rail Corridor development, including utility installations. Overnight on Thursday October 22, crews will be installing the storm pipe on the north side of the Corridor. Due to the proximity of live tracks, this work must be performed overnight. Crews continue to use the access gate through the noise wall on Locust Ave to access the corridor north of Eglinton Ave W.

 

What to Expect

Installation of the storm pipe includes the use of excavators, front end loaders, rollers, and tampers. Crews will be excavating to install the pipe, and then refilling and levelling the demolition site with fresh granular material and compaction of the material into the ground. Noise from construction equipment caused by loaders, trucks, and other machinery, as well as dust and debris removal can be expected. Crews will be using a roller to perform backfilling and compaction works. Vibrations can be expected.
