City of Toronto Storm Water Work Yonge & The Esplanade – October 11 – 13

Posted October 11

Please Note: 

    We have been advised that City of Toronto contractor OJCR will be working at Yonge Street and The Esplanade starting Friday night, October 11 through to Sunday, October 13, on storm water connections. We anticipate that there may be disruptions to traffic flow and possibly pedestrian access to The Esplanade from Yonge Street. 

The Esplanade reopens to vehicles btwn Yonge & Scott

Yesterday’s closure of the eastbound vehicle lane on The Esplanade between Yonge & Scott Street will end this afternoon with the reopening of the vehicle lane. Pedestrian access has been maintained throughout the day. 

The Backstage & L Tower Parking construction schedule for July 8 – 12 was unaffected by the storm and remains on track. Please click here to view it.

The Esplanade closed from Yonge to Scott

Please note that due to a water-main break earlier today on Front Street, east of Scott Street there are two temporary road closures:

  1. Front Street is closed from Scott Street to Church Street.
  2. Toronto Police Services and the City of Toronto Works Department have also asked for The Esplanade to be closed from Younge Street to Scott Street to minimize traffic in the area.

There is no information on the duration of this closure at this time. Once we have more information we will post it here.

Recap on Dec 5 Long Reach Back-hoe delivery

UPDATE: The Long Reach Back-hoe that was scheduled to arrive Wednesday, December 5, under police escort between 6:20 am and 7:00 am. It actually arrived at 5:30 am as the City of Toronto permit stipulated that the semi-trailer float (truck) had to be out of the downtown core prior to 6:00 am. Unfortunately we did not receive accurate information on the timing of the delivery.

On December 4 we were advised by subcontractor GFL Excavating that the back-hoe was coming early in the morning, instead of the originally and preferred plan to deliver it at midday. GFL could not get a permit for midday because City of Toronto staff considered the impact on daytime traffic would be too onerous. The permit was issued for 5 am to 6 am delivery and GFL was instructed by the City and the Police to have their large delivery truck off the site an out of the downtown by 6:00 am.

In this case the regulations for large deliveries trumped the regulations for construction noise; the regulating bodies determined that the traffic regulations trumped the standard construction noise regulations.
