The Common Diversion Road Modified Sidewalk and Construction Hoarding Beginning on Tuesday, October 13, 2015

October 9, 2015

Beginning on Tuesday, October 13, 2015 until approximately Friday, November 13, 2015, the pedestrian sidewalk width will be modified to five metres (16 feet) on the east side of the Harry W. Arthurs Common. TTC buses will not be off-loading passengers to the eastern sidewalk adjacent to the Common Diversion Road during this period. The inbound and outbound TTC transit routes and bus stops remain the same.

The construction site hoarding and sidewalk width is being modified to allow for utility work connections for York University subway station. Construction activity also includes the use of dump trucks entering the construction site from Ian Macdonald Boulevard onto the Common Diversion Road and exiting via York Boulevard through the Common.Your patience is greatly appreciated.
