September 3, 2013

Subway extension construction continues northbound on Allen Road north of Sheppard Avenue West in the High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane. Current construction includes the completion of tunnelling and handover to the subway track installation contractor.  The construction site is on the east side of Allen Road north of Sheppard Avenue West to north of De Boers Drive. The HOV lane is anticipated to reopen in early 2014.

Construction work for this period includes:

• Delivery and installation of subway track.

Work Hours

• Work will normally run between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m., Monday to Friday.

Lane Restrictions on Allen Road

The HOV northbound lane on Allen Road north of Sheppard Avenue West will be closed until the spring of 2014. The HOV lane is closed from north of Sheppard Avenue West to north of De Boers Drive (approximately 464 metres). Due to the nature of the work, motorists may face temporary traffic delays northbound on Allen Road.
