New Walkway Construction near York Research Tower and York Lanes

February 27, 2012

Starting the week of February 27th, a new walkway will be constructed between York Lanes and the York Research Tower.  Portions of the existing wooden construction fence will be removed as crews begin preparing the new walkway.

Construction of this walkway will involve some demolition of concrete, grading and compaction of the area, for a 6 metre wide asphalt walkway. For occupants of the York Research Tower or York Lanes, the demolition and compaction activities may result in noise and vibration as a result of this typical construction work.

An extension of the current walkway on the east side of Ian Macdonald Boulevard will also be constructed. This extension is necessary to accommodate utility work which will extend beyond the current construction fencing north of Ian Macdonald Boulevard. Initially, construction fencing will be installed as crews prepare for the utility relocation. A further notice will be distributed to the community when the new walkway is open and available for use. Please take extra care while walking near the construction areas and follow the pedestrian signs.

Line Painting at York Boulevard and James Gillies Street

As part of normal maintenance, limited and intermittent traffic diversions will take place at the intersection of York Boulevard and James Gillies Street as a crew will be re-painting lines on the road. This periodic maintenance is weather dependent.
