Steeles Avenue West Roadway Diversions West of Keele Street Begin on Wednesday, August 29th

August 28, 2012

Beginning tomorrow afternoon, the roadway on Steeles Avenue West will be diverted north two lanes in each direction (over the next several months), west of Keele Street for subway construction. Two lanes will remain open in both directions during this work.

Pedestrian Access:

Pedestrians are advised that the sidewalk on the south side of Steeles Avenue West is to be closed west of Founders Road in approximately seven (7) days or when the north sidewalk has been completed. Pedestrians should then use the new sidewalk on the north side of Steeles Avenue West.

Lane Restrictions & Construction Vehicle Access:

Traffic restrictions on Steeles Avenue West will continue and be modified to suit subway construction activities over the next three years. While driving through this construction zone, please use extra care and reduced speeds. Traffic movement will be reduced to ensure public safety and to allow for construction vehicles to access the site on both north and south sides of Steeles Avenue West.

Paid duty officers will be on Steeles Avenue West directing traffic during the lane restrictions.
