Construction: Temporary Bridge Installations On Dunn Avenue This Weekend

This weekend, the City of Toronto’s contractor will be installing two temporary bridges to connect Dunn Avenue to Lakeshore Boulevard West. The crane set up will start at approximately 11:00 p.m. on Friday February 5, 2016.

While the installation of the temporary bridges will be completed over the weekend, the bridges will not reopen to vehicular traffic until March 2016.

We appreciate resident’s patience during the demolition and installation of these bridges. You will receive notice when the bridges reopen.

What to expect during construction

You will experience dust, noise and other inconveniences. The City will make efforts to reduce impacts.

Work Hours: The bridge installation will occur from 11:00p.m. to 5:00 a.m.

The remaining work will take place from 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday to Friday,
with work after hours, overnight and on weekends as required.

Traffic Management: Efforts have been made to manage traffic in the area for the safety of workers, road users and residents. Some of these efforts include adding Local Access signs, revising traffic signal times. Road users should expect delays and increased traffic on nearby main and side streets.
