TTC Construction Notice

Friends,

Following the major track maintenance work this past summer, ongoing quality assurance checks are performed by staff to identify any deficiencies that may exist.

As a result of a recent quality check, staff has identified an area between Dundas West and Keele stations that requires tamping the ballast to further secure the track in place.

Date: September 6 to 8, 2017 – approximately 3 a.m. to 5 a.m.
*Content/timeline is accurate at time of printing. Weather permitting.

A track crew and a work-car will be in the area overnight from September 6 to 8 to complete this localized work.

While efforts will be made to keep noise levels to a minimum, some noise will be unavoidable when the work-car is in operation.

Thank you for your continued patience with this matter.

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.

Keele Station Improvements

Friends,

The TTC will be rehabilitating the roof at Keele Station to maintain it in a state of good repair. In order to keep the station open for riders, construction work will be phased in several stages.

Customers will board buses at different bays at the station beginning August 10, 2017. Signage will be posted. During each phase of construction, one bus bay will be closed to safely complete the roofing work. Once completed, the next bus bay will be closed so that work can continue sequentially.

Drainage systems at platform and street level will also be upgraded. Protective hoarding will be in place throughout the station as required.

Please see the notice attached for more details.

Thanks,
Gord
