Milton Rail Corridor 2nd Track Reinstatement Notice

Posted on November 14, 2016

Metrolinx will soon begin work to reinstate the second span of track on the Milton corridor between Keele Street and Bloor Station. Due to the close proximity to an active rail corridor, work must be completed when trains are not operating. This consists of both daytime and overnight work. Construction will involve grading the old track bed, realigning the existing set of tracks and reinstating the second set of tracks. Specialized rail equipment will be used and residents should expect some noise and vibration associated with the work. Lighting will be used for overnight work, but will be directed on the immediate work site, away from homes, when possible. Once complete, the tracks will be outfitted with ballast mats designed to minimize vibrations from passing trains.

This project will begin in November and will be completed in early 2017.

Hours of operation are as follows:
 Weekdays: 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
 Overnight: 8:00 p.m. to 5 a.m.
 Weekends: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

If you would like to find out more information about the upcoming work, we will be hosting a drop-in session at the Bloor Station, at the main entrance, 1456 Bloor Street West on November 17th, 2016 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Representatives from Metrolinx will be there to answer any questions you may have about the project.
