Queens Quay East construction work continues

Municipal services work update from WaterfronToronto:

Crews have finished all work in the western portion of the construction zone on Queens Quay – from Bonnycastle St. to about 100 metres east. Final asphalt paving is complete in this zone. The construction fence around this area has been removed and replaced with safety barrels, which will remain in place until all road restoration between Bonnycastle and Small Streets is complete. Crews are now installing the storm sewer east to Small Street. Once this work is complete, they will clean up and grade the area in preparation for final asphalt paving. This area is scheduled to be fully reopened to the public in approximately four weeks.

Starting on Monday, March 28, work will begin to install two storm forcemains on the east side of Parliament Street from Lake Shore Boulevard to Small Street. As of Monday, construction fencing on the southeast corner of Lake Shore and Parliament Street will be extended across the entrance to the parking facility at 333 Lake Shore Boulevard. Anyone requiring access to this property should use the entrance just east of Parliament Street. Pedestrians and cyclists wishing to cross northbound at this intersection will be directed around this fencing.

Starting in mid-to-late April, the construction fencing will extend across the Martin Goodman Trail just south of Lake Shore. Active construction on Queens Quay has created space constraints, making it unsafe to provide a temporary on-street lane for cyclists. Signs will be installed indicating that cyclists must temporarily dismount and join pedestrians on the sidewalk. We will work to ensure that this diversion is in place for as short a period as possible.

The final stage of this work will involve lane restrictions on Queens Quay East.

Additional details about this work and updates regarding lane restrictions and diversions will be circulated as this project progresses.
