Sent to neighbours:
As you know, demolition of the Yonge Street viaduct is underway. Crews are currently building the second half of the perimeter concrete edge beam of the wall to complete the project, and have identified additional work that will require access to Yonge Street to complete, including modifying traffic lights in the intersection and work on an adjacent overpass.
As a result of the additional works, the anticipated construction end date for this work has shifted to Saturday, April 8, 2023.
During this time, part of Yonge Street, from Lake Shore Boulevard to Front Street, will continue to be closed to facilitate the remaining construction activities. Presently, the two northbound lanes on Yonge Street, from Lake Shore Boulevard to Front Street will continue to be closed to facilitate the remaining construction activities. Two-way traffic will be maintained on the southbound lanes. Access to Esplanade has been reinstated to Yonge St.
To facilitate these new construction activities, the traffic will be switched between North Bound and South Bound lanes. The following schedule shows when the traffic will be switched on Yonge Street, from Front to Lakeshore.
- Southbound Lanes closed (February 25th – March 10th)
- Northbound Lanes closed (March 11th – March 24th)
- Southbound Lanes closed (March 27th – April 8th)
We understand the impact of this closure on the neighbourhood, and crews are working as quickly as possible to complete the work safely. We thank you in advance for your patience during this extended work period. If you have any questions pleas reach out to us at community@CIBCSQUARE.com.
