Curious to know the status of the ICE-MLS path construction... By this time the work was supposed to switch sides of the street to complete the second half of the tunnel under the MLS side of York. Hasn't happened yet. Not sure what the status of this is.
Construction to extend the PATH connection from Maple Leaf Square to the ICE Condos and 16 York St. has been ongoing this year with an anticipated completion date in mid to late 2020.
Once completed, the PATH connection from Maple Leaf Square will be located in Longo’s, adjacent to Starbucks.
Phase II of this project will commence the week of November 18th where the construction work will be switching to the east side of York Street, as illustrated below.
Please note the following:
Pink arrows indicate the flow of traffic travelling north/south.
Green highlighted pedestrian walkway has narrowed from the revolving doors towards the e11even restaurant.
Black benches will not be accessible and will fenced off within the construction zone.
I believe that is waterproofing material that would be being inserted along the edges of the excavation - kind of like a mini-shoring and waterproofing combination - in advance of breaking through the Maple Leaf Square / Longo's wall - to prevent water from running from the tunnel being built into the Longo's store.
A similar rig, complete with the bags of grey powder, being mixed and inserted into the hole, was being used for the Metrolinx Ontario Line ground sampling on Wellington Street West at Bathurst Street, where waterproofing was required because of the number of under the road utility services in the area.
Thanks for the photo update! The past few days I've heard a lot more trucks and noise around here. Hoping the sidewalk and tree boxes get complete soon on the 16 York side of the street. At least get that sidewalk open again
