Metrolinx work to reinstate track on Milton corridor

THE LOCAL PROJECT

Overnight work will commence agin on September 5th, to reinstate the second span of track on the Milton corridor between Keele Street and Bloor Station. During construction of the West Toronto Diamond grade separation, this span of track was temporarily decommissioned, as trains could not safely operate so close to the worksite. With construction in this area completed, the second track can now be reinstated.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Continuing on September 5th overnight hydrovacuum truck work will take place in the rail corridor near Abott
Ave., from 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m., for approximately two weeks, dependent on weather. Lights will be directed
on the worksite and some noise and vibrations are to be expected as a result of the hydrovac. To ensure that
vibrations stay within city bylaws there is a vibration monitor on site at all times throughout the project, where
we will continue to monitor vibration levels. This work can only be done at night, when there’s minimal train
activity.

TIMING

Hours of operation are as follows:
Weekdays: 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Overnight: 8:00 p.m. to 6 a.m.
Weekends: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
