Crosstown LRT – Construction 

May 3, 2019 

Work on the Crosstown LRT continues and, for some, traffic, construction activities continue to be a nuisance.  It is good to know however, that we are told work is progressing on time and we can report the tunneling tor the Avenue station has now “broken though” from the main to the secondary entrance.

There is still much work that will need to be done and this will cause some disruption.  This is particularly true at the Chaplin Station where overnight Hydro Utility work is scheduled for the week of May 5 – 10.  Additionally, there will be road closures and lane restrictions.

ARECA suggest you visit the Crosstown web site …  and while you are on their site, you can sign up for updates …

We also ask that you please respect speed limits throughout the area (and of course everywhere).  Added volume on parallel streets and incidents of road rage are being reported!

Lastly, local merchants are being affected by the construction … please try to support our local merchants.
