Paving and Painting of W.R. Allen Road south of Sheppard Avenue West

August 11, 2011

The first phase of construction finishes next week on W.R. Allen Road, south of Sheppard Avenue, building a tunnel connecting Downsview Station to TTC Wilson Yard. Crews will be paving and painting Allen Road on Monday, August 15th and Tuesday, August 16th overnight beginning at 8 p.m. The work is necessary as part of the Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension (TYSSE) project.

Construction work includes the paving and painting of the roadway surface of Allen Road from Sheppard Avenue West to south of Downsview Station. Paid duty officers will be directing traffic during the work. The Downsview Busway entrance and exit to Allen Road will be closed and buses will be rerouted onto Sheppard Avenue West.

The City of Toronto has approved a noise by-law exemption which allows the contractor to
perform overnight and weekend work to minimize traffic and neighbourhood disruptions.

Work Hours

Overnight work will run from 8:00 p.m. to 5:30 a.m., Monday and Tuesday.

Lane Restrictions during the Project

There will be lane restrictions on Allen Road, south of Sheppard Ave. W., in both directions to accommodate the work. Paid duty officers will be directing traffic during the overnight work.

We regret any inconvenience that may be caused as a result of this work.
