Why are they paving over the removed median?
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.

Various substations will be built in 2021-23.

2022/23 will see the widening of the 407 overpass.

The arrangement by the city to all unities a few years ago that they must move, replace, add and upgrade their systems for the whole corridor by 2020, as they weren't allow to touch the rebuilt road for 10 years after it was completed, other than emergency work. Gas line work is still taking place at various locations and to be completed this year. They did a lot more work than originally plan.

Once the temporary traffic lights are up at all traffic lights intersections and turn on, the existing lights will be remove along with the remaining median and pave over.

At this point, construction on the road will start south of Port Credit station and move north starting 2021.

What are the odds that the Hurontario LRT will open successfully in 2024, without the issues of the Ottawa LRT?
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.

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.

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.

There is a Brampton Transit Advisory Committee meeting tonight. It will be livestreamed.

@Wm Perkins Bull posted the agenda and presentation deck to the Zum thread, but it also mentions the Hurontario LRT and the Main Street LRT EA. Material here and screenshots below.
