The vehicular Road Closure continues Wednesday, May 18 2016 for the eastbound lane on The Esplanade from Yonge Street to Scott Street. A possible extension to Thursday May 19 may occur if required. We will have an update tomorrow on the 18th.

As work continues tomorrow, May 18: 

  • Pedestrian access will remain open to Yonge Street on the south side of The Esplanade. 
  • There may be short term disruptions to pedestrian flow as active crane work occurs. 
  • The City of Toronto has issued a road closure
    permit for this work.

A mobile crane is required to remove the remaining sections of the tower crane. The vehicular road closure is required to permit the mobile crane to be delivered, installed and removed.
