BLOOR STREET Construction Update
May 14, 2009
Yonge Street to Church Street:
All work has moved to the north side of Bloor St. East, between Yonge St. and St. Paul Square. Installation of the concrete sub-base and the granite will take place, predominantly, in front of 2 Bloor Street East/Hudson Bay Centre working eastwards from Yonge Street towards Park Road. Work on excavation and soil cell installation is now complete in front of 120 and 160 Bloor Street East and granite installation has begun. Paving of the roadway will occur, once the boulevard work is completed, which is estimated to be completed by August.
Yonge Street to Avenue Road:
Construction equipment and barriers between Bay St. and Yonge St. will be removed by the end of this week. The City contractor will be carrying out ‘test pit’ work in several locations between Yonge and Avenue Road, where further investigation of current road conditions is required. Isolated pockets within street lanes will be closed, on occasion, to complete this work.
Due to ongoing and extensive work on numerous hydro chambers located in the roadway, Toronto Hydro will be working in isolated locations between Yonge and Avenue Road for approximately 6 - 7 months*. Lowering of the hydro chamber lids and upgrading of antiquated lines requires complete access to hydro chambers within this portion of the road way; the City contractor work will not be able to carry out boulevard work until hydro work is complete.
Pedestrian access to businesses and properties, between Yonge St. and Avenue Road will NOT be interrupted. No major work will be occurring on the boulevards.
* A Q & A will follow shortly providing more details regarding necessary hydro work
