Charleston and Burnelm Speed Humps

Posted in Road Work, Updates, Ward 5

 

 

It was always the District Traffic Operations’ intention to treat Charleston Road/Burnelm Drive as one street given the connection between Bloor Street West and Burnhamthorpe Road. This was reflected in the letter sent to residents. Therefore, the humps have been installed on Burnelm. We are happy to see them finally installed on Charleston! We have confirmed with staff that the humps installed are to present standards.

Construction at Bloor St. W. and Resurrection Road

Posted in Road Work, Updates, Ward 5

 

This road work is a part of the overall Six Points Interchange Reconfiguration. The current northbound lane restriction on Resurrection Road, as well as the left and right turn restrictions on from Bloor St. W. were instituted as a safety measure and to maintain traffic flow on Bloor Street W. These restrictions were put in place following observations made on the ground, and were not anticipated.

Work impacting the northbound lane of Resurrection Rd. is expected to be completed by November 7, 2017. Starting November 3, left turns from Bloor Street onto Resurrection Road will be permitted weekly from Friday evenings until Monday mornings. Construction equipment and fencing will be relocated in order to facilitate bi-directional traffic over these times.

Please note that due to ongoing roadwork on Bloor St. W. traffic will remain restricted to one eastbound and one westbound lane; as such, motorists will continue to be unable to make a left turn (traveling eastbound on Bloor St. W.) onto Resurrection Road during the regular work week, into 2018.

Please direct any future questions or concerns regarding the Six Points Interchange Reconfiguration to:

West Mall Crescent – New Sidewalks

Posted in Road Work, Updates, Ward 5

 
The following sections have been proposed as projects for 2020. They will be assessed for conflicts through the Major Capital Infrastructure Coordination (MCIC) process and are pending full program budget finalization:

  • West Mall Cres between Dundas St E and The West Mall
  • The West Mall between West Mall Cres and the existing sidewalk at the Metro Distribution Centre

To note, the section of The West Mall will be a challenge to construct. There is less than 1.0m of public land between the existing curb and private property with significant grading constraints. Staff will have to investigate property acquisition or encroachment to have this sidewalk delivered and may have to defer the work until such time as a road reconstruction to deliver it in a cost effective manner.
