Construction notice: York Road lane reductions starting December 16

Stevenson Street South to Victoria Road South

About the project

DST Consulting Engineers Inc. will be conducting a geotechnical investigation on York Road. Work involves the drilling of boreholes.

Performing this investigation is part of the York Road Reconstruction project. It will give the project team an accurate understanding of the subsurface of the roadway, including groundwater levels.

This work is not part of the environmental testing that is taking place south of York Road in the area of Menzie, Audrey and Lawrence avenues.

Work starts December 16

Work is scheduled to start on or about December 16 and take about five days to complete, weather permitting.

Lane reductions expected

York Road will undergo lane reductions during the project. Two way traffic will be maintained at all times. Cyclists will be required to merge with vehicular traffic. Please follow posted signs for safety. A full road closure is not expected, however, delays should be expected.

Pedestrian access

The sidewalks in the area will remain open and accessible during construction.

Property and business access and parking

All businesses in the construction area remain open and accessible throughout construction.

Every effort will be made to maintain access to driveways in the construction area during working hours (7 a.m.–7 p.m.). Construction activities and equipment movement may temporarily impact access to private property.
