Lansdowne Avenue Bridge Span Replacement
Mid-November to Summer 2015

What Metrolinx is doing
• Metrolinx is beginning work to replace three bridge spans on the south side of the Lansdowne Ave. bridge. They will also upgrade the bridge abutments during this work.

How this will affect you
• This work will take place over several months in different stages.
Stage 1: Preparatory Work – preparing the bridge site: moving in equipment and material. A drill rig will be delivered to site on Wednesday November 12, at approximately 1 p.m. using Shirley St. Traffic controls will be in place. This will take at most a couple of hours.
Stage 2: Modifying the bridge abutments. Intermittent impact to sidewalk and traffic lane restriction.
Stage 3: Removal and installation of the three bridge spans. This will require a complete closure of the sidewalk and all traffic lanes on Lansdowne Ave. underneath the bridge.
• You will be notified in advance of any temporary lane restrictions or road closures on Lansdowne Ave.

Overnight Track Work between Bathurst St. and North of Queen St. W. Until the End of November

Posted on November 12, 2014

The Georgetown South (GTS) Project will provide infrastructure improvements to meet existing GO Transit ridership demand and future growth. It will also accommodate the new Union Pearson Express service between Union Station and Pearson International Airport. This project is one of the key elements of The Big Move.

Overnight Track Work between Bathurst St. and North of Queen St. W. Until the End of November

What Metrolinx is doing:
As Metrolinx approaches the end of the Strachan Avenue Overpass work, we are in the final stretch of installing the last sections of track to complete the expansion of the rail corridor to increase commuter train service.

Conduit Work: The work to install conduits beneath the tracks, which houses our track signalling system, continues between Bathurst St. to King St. W.

Work hours are Monday to Saturday from 7 p.m. to 5 a.m. until the end of November (weather permitting).

Track Shift: For 3 consecutive weekends, beginning November 14 (may be rescheduled due to weather), we will also be working continuously to shift and install new tracks in the south corridor between Bathurst St. and north of Queen. St. W.

Following each weekend, there will be overnight welding and de-stressing of the new track

How this will affect you:
Residents living nearby can expect some noise associated with construction equipment.

Lights will be used overnight to ensure safe working conditions. However, they will be focused away from nearby homes and businesses as much as possible.

Conduit Work: There will be some work with a vacuum truck which will occur for several hours over the course of one evening. We will do our best to ensure that this work happens earlier in the evening.

A vacuum truck is the best way to excavate without damaging the underground infrastructure
This track work can only be completed outside regular train service.

Track Shift: Specialized rail construction equipment will be used to install the new tracks.
Thank you for your ongoing patience as we complete the Strachan Avenue Overpass.
