Cancelled – Road closure for L Tower Hoist removal July 19 and 20


The L Tower Hoist (external elevator pictured in the photo below) WAS to be removed over the weekend of  Saturday, July 19 and Sunday, July 20, 2014 and will now be removed the following weekend. The change is due to ongoing remedial work in the wake of last weekend’s flood at the L Tower.

The hoist will be taken down in stages using the Large Tower Crane to street level. 

The Road Closure of The Esplanade between Yonge Street and Scott Street will be in effect from 12:01 am Saturday through Midnight on Sunday, to permit the safe lowering of each hoist section. 

Pedestrian access will be maintained except when sections of the hoist are being lowered by the crane.

Traffic control staff will be on hand as well as two (2) Paid Duty Officers of the Toronto Police Service

The road closure permit will be posted on site. Reminder notices will be delivered to the two neighbouring condominiums. Reminder email and social media notices will be posted prior to the weekend and any updates will also posted on this website.
