The work currently restricts eastbound traffic along Steeles Avenue West to just one lane between Murray Ross Parkway and Northwest Gate as crews install a traffic bridge. The contractors expect to continue this eastbound lane restriction until June 15. Two westbound lanes remain open and one eastbound lane remains open at all times near the site of the future Black Creek Pioneer Village Station. Due to the nature of the work, motorists and transit passengers may face traffic delays.
“Paid-duty” police officers are directing traffic through the lane restrictions on Steeles Avenue West**.
