What Work is Taking Place?

Beginning Wednesday November 22, a large overhead Gantry Crane will be delivered to Avenue Station and installed at the Secondary Entrance site.  

Several truckloads of large steel columns that the overhead crane will sit on will be delivered to the site.  Due to the size of these deliveries, trucks will be backed-in to the existing construction zone east of Avenue Road through the west gate.  Short traffic interruptions can be expected while these deliveries take place.

As deliveries are made, crews will begin installing the Gantry Crane structure. Installation work will take place on a 24hr schedule.

Timing of Work

  • Work will begin as early as Wednesday November 22 and the crane installation will take approximately one (1) week.
  • Installation work will take place on a 24hr schedule. 
  • Work may be rescheduled due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

Traffic and Pedestrian Impacts

  • Short duration traffic interruptions can be expected while trucks enter and exit the work zone.
  • As always, please take care when travelling near work sites.
