[JUNE UPDATE]

Additional Signage around Six Points Reconfiguration

The Six Points reconfiguration team are constantly working in tandem with the City’s Transportation dept. to add additional advanced signage advising on recent ramp closures.

There is also signage clearly indicating that Viking Lane is not to be used as a thoroughfare. The assigned Contractor has posted signs at each entrance to Viking Lane advising that it is a private roadway intended for local access only.

In addition, there are a range of maps available on the Six Points project website to help inform drivers on available alternate routes to travel through the Six Points area.

Look for Construction #5 in the ‘Construction Notice’ section of this eNewsletter.

[DEC UPDATE]

Bloor at Resurrection Rd.

The ongoing construction work on the north side of Bloor St. W was previously expected to shift to the south side by November 24th  but was delayed due to complications from the Contractor (Fermar Paving Ltd.).   It has now been moved to the south side.

Following the Bloor Street West construction shift (work commencing on the south side of Bloor), there are no planned traffic restrictions to turn on to or off of Resurrection Rd. However, project staff will continue to monitor traffic conditions, and may institute future traffic restrictions due to travel concerns and general safety. All updates of this nature will be posted on the Six Points project website.

 

Demolition of the Six Points Bridge

The Six Points Interchange bridges are currently planned for demolition in early 2019. A construction update notice will be mailed to area residents via Canada Post informing on the dates of closure closer to the demolition, and the Six Points project website will help outline information on all traffic detours.
