This tunnel construction is anticipated to last until approximately June 2013.

Work Hours

The City of Toronto normal construction work hours are 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. However, the City of Toronto has approved a noise by-law amendment for major transit projects which allows contractors to perform overnight and weekend work for the duration of the project, when required. Extended work hours are expected to occur in the Vanier/Founders Green area for the next two days. Please visit our website for exact dates.

Pedestrian Access

A new walkway has been built south of the construction site. Please use this new walkway and existing walkways around Vanier Residence and the construction site and follow posted signs.
