Dufferin Street Bridge update: Closure to Pedestrians & Cyclists Extended

Posted on December 12, 2013

Expected Re-opening to Pedestrians & Cyclists: January 2014

The City of Toronto has successfully completed the demolition of the Dufferin Street Bridge over the Metrolinx/GO Transit Rail Corridor. The bridge demolition took place during a 48 hour complete closure of the Lakeshore West Rail Corridor between November 29, 2013 and December 2, 2013.

The City had planned to open a temporary pedestrian and cyclist bridge immediately following the demolition, but this installation has been delayed. We anticipate that this pedestrian bridge will be installed and opened in January 2014. Two additional temporary modular bridges will be installed to carry vehicular traffic. The temporary vehicular bridges are expected to be installed in February 2014.

During the closure, pedestrians can use Atlantic Avenue to access Exhibition Place.

raffic Restrictions

Vehicular traffic will continue to be required to detour around the closure. Signage advising of the closure of the Dufferin Street Bridge has been placed on the street network to allow motorists to choose alternate routes.

Additional signage to advise pedestrians and cyclists of the closure has been installed.

Your co-operation and patience during the closure period is appreciated.

Follow-up from Tim Hortons (175 Roncesvalles Ave) based on November 28th community meeting

Posted on December 6, 2013

Tim Hortons has provided follow-up actions based on the community meeting on November 28th regarding 175 Roncesvalles.

 

Signage:
The signage depicted at the community meeting on November28th.  The lettering will be reduced from 36″ to 30″ and will be a solid sign with white background halo lighting.

The sign will only be illuminated during hours of operation.

 

Hours of Operation:

For start-up the hours of operation will be from 6am – 11pm.  These hours will be evaluated over time.

 

Beautification:

Gaurav and Ashima Vij are committed to exploring beautification options in the spring of 2014.

The future consideration of a patio may also contribute to the beautification of this corner.
Exterior Multi-stream Waste and Recycling Units:

There will be an exterior multi-stream waste and recycling container placed at the exterior of the restaurant to ensure access to proper disposal.  The need for addition containers will be evaluated on an ongoing basis.

 

Deliveries:

Operations and distribution staff are meeting at the site next week to evaluate delivery procedures.  All delivery take place during the hours of 7am and 7pm with parking on Roncesvalles.

Waste and Recycling Collection:

Wasteco will collect waste and recyclables from the curbside daily on Roncesvalles via totes; similar to the waste collection program operated by the City of Toronto.  Waste and recycling will be stored in an indoor garage.

Collection times are to be determined; however a request that collection not take place early in morning or late at night has been made.

 

Noise:

The current set-up for the compressor is designed for noise to travel upwards rather than out of the sides.  All of the equipment is up to modern standards and we do not anticipate there will be concerns over noise once the restaurant is in operation.

Restaurant Owner Contact Information:

Gaurav and Ashima Vij
The cell phone number is listed on the storefront
Email: taketims@gmail.com

When the restaurant has been assigned a phone number, we will provide that as well.

Our next step will be to schedule a meeting with the community in February.
