As part of the electrical upgrades planned at the Roncesvalles Carhouse, the contractor will be using a generator to power the facility in order to maintain regular operation. To minimize noise, a low-noise generator has been secured to provide temporary power for approximately one week while crews install new permanent electrical feeds to the carhouse. During this period, area residents may notice an increase in noise.
The generator will be situated the furthest distance possible from residential properties in order to minimize disruption to area residents. The generator selected for this work is commonly used in noise sensitive areas because of its low-decibel operating performance.
Given that the carhouse supports 24-hour transit service, the generator will operate continuously starting Sunday, April 23, 2017 until Sunday, April 30, 2017.
There will be no impact to streetcar operations.
