To allow traffic lanes to be move from side to side as infrastructure is upgraded, rebuilt and replace, as well rebuilding road and sidewalk first in 2021/22. Once this is done, the guide-way/ROW will be built in 2022/23 in the centre of the road as well the stations.Why are they paving over the removed median?
The odds are very great it will open in time since Finch will have cars first and and issues from Ottawa/Finch will be worked out before the HuLRT opens.What are the odds that the Hurontario LRT will open successfully in 2024, without the issues of the Ottawa LRT?

You just assume the P3 handing the construction and maintenance would do their part correctly. The confederation and ION lines had trouble before the launch so for Finch and HuLRT, we would know if it'll be working or not before they open.This is huge. A big part of ION's delay in Waterloo was that it ended up being the launch customer for the Flexity Freedom after all of the Transit City delays and cancellations. This was compounded by the lack of a control system specification which forced Waterloo to spec and acquire their own in the 11th hour.
The Automated Train Protection that was supposed to speed up ION's off-road sections has only been operating for a few months now, and still not as well as it should with some areas painfully slow compared to previous Line of Sight operation. The region has never blamed Metrolinx, likely not wanting to bite the hand that funds phase 2, but I do.
Hurontario will be just fine if the Alstoms are already in place on Finch.
