Getting ready for rapidway construction:
More geotechnical work on Highway 7 West, November 20, 21

Metrolinx and York Region contractors continue to carry out geotechnical tests along Highway 7 near Keele Street this week to help prepare for the first phase of rapidway construction.

Tomorrow, Tuesday, November 20 and Wednesday, November 21, they’ll be working from 9:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. in the eastbound curb and centre lanes for about 50 metres (150 feet) at Hillside Avenue, just west of Keele.

During the work, crews will use a truck-mounted drill rig to bore holes along the road and extract samples. They’ll fill each hole before they move to the next spot. Expect noise during drilling.
