L Tower crane removal update May 6 2016

L Tower construction information 8 The Esplanade – L Tower  Update May 6, 2016

The tower crane is coming down in sections this week. This work will continue through the week. The Esplanade remains open to eastbound traffic there may be temporary interruptions to vehicular traffic for safety reasons when crane sections are lowered to the curb. Pedestrian access to Yonge Street is unaffected, however when sections are being lowered to the sidewalk, pedestrians may be directed to walk on the south side of the street. 

When the crane removal reaches the 17th floor, a mobile crane will be required to take the remaining sections down.

To permit the mobile crane to be delivered, installed and removed, a vehicular road closure from Scott Street to Yonge Street along The Esplanade will take place from May 16th through May 18th. 

We will post more specific details of the road closure next week.

Please check back for updates.
