Subway construction blocks St. Regis Crescent traffic,
this weekend, February 9 and 10



TTC and City of Toronto contractors continue working on the project to extend the 1 Yonge - University - Spadina subway northwest from Downsview Station to York University and Vaughan.

Construction wraps up this month on the north side of St. Regis Crescent, east of Keele Street, where contractors have been building the southern tunnels for the new line. This Saturday, February 9 and Sunday, February 10 from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. they’ll start to retreat from the site which gave workers access to the tunnels.

Crews will be connecting utilities and rebuilding the roadway. The City of Toronto has approved a noise by-law amendment which allows the project contractors to perform overnight and weekend work to minimize traffic disruptions and keep the project on schedule.

The work continues to restrict St. Regis Crescent to a single lane of traffic during the day and return to two lanes at night. The contractors will station traffic flag personnel near the work zone to make sure traffic flows safely.

Due to the nature of the work, motorists may face traffic delays.

The sidewalks remain open at all times to maintain pedestrian access during this portion of construction.
