TORONTO, Sept. 14, 2014 /CNW/ - There will be lane restrictions on Adelaide Street, from Simcoe Street to York Street, to accommodate watermain replacement, TTC track removal and road and sidewalk reconstruction starting on Monday, September, 15. The work is expected to take approximately eight weeks.
Due to the removal of the existing concrete road, only one lane of eastbound traffic on Adelaide Street will be maintained from Simcoe Street to York Street during the first several weeks of work. A left turn lane from Adelaide Street to northbound University Avenue will remain available, along with a right turn lane onto eastbound Adelaide Street from northbound University Avenue.
This construction project is part of the City's comprehensive and coordinated strategy to rehabilitate and upgrade our roads, transit and underground infrastructure for current and future needs.
More details about the work can be found online at www.toronto.ca/constructioninfo (Ward 28).
