Metrolinx: Lansdowne Avenue Bridge Rehabilitation Project

Posted on November 4, 2015

As part of the Regional Express Rail program, Metrolinx is transforming the existing GO rail system to deliver a new rapid transit experience to your community.

Regional Express Rail will mean, electrified GO service on the Kitchener and Barrie lines that will be faster and offer 15-minute service in both directions through core areas. It will also include all-stop and express service increases to meet the growing demand for transit options, reducing congestion on city streets and commute times. The Government of Ontario has fully funded and approved the $13.5 billion in new infrastructure that is needed to offer this level of service. As part of this investment, the Lansdowne Avenue Bridge Rehabilitation Project will be completed.

What we are doing:
• We are beginning work to replace three bridge spans on the north side of the Lansdowne Avenue Bridge and also upgrade the bridge abutments.

• Earlier this year, bridge spans on the south side were replaced as part of the Georgetown South Project.

• Work on abutment walls will begin this fall. Bridge spans are expected to be installed in spring 2016.

• Expect intermittent impacts to sidewalk and traffic lane restrictions, along with a complete closure of sidewalk and traffic lanes on Lansdowne Avenue underneath the bridge during span installation.

• Regular work hours for this project are Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Any work that cannot be completed while trains are operating will be completed outside regular work hours including nights and during weekends.

• A portion of the parking lot at 222 Lansdowne Ave. (No Frills) will be used as the construction laydown area for the duration of this project.
