As part of the Stage 2 O-Train Light Rail Transit (LRT) project, crews will periodically be working overnight in the Lincoln Fields, Carling Avenue, and Connaught Park areas including along the Transitway. Work will take place daily with periodic night shifts across the alignment of the West extension.
Night work is required from the area of Lincoln Fields Station, Carling Avenue, the Transitway to Connaught Park as work proceeds on bridges, structures, utilities, and roads. Overnight activities may include excavation and hauling, concrete pouring, drilling, paving, grading, and lane closures. Efforts will be made to reduce impact to residents as much as possible.
As required, between 10:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. November through December 2021.
To complete critical project work that is time sensitive and/or required during off-peak hours.
Lincoln Fields Station area and on Carling Avenue, the Transitway, and in Connaught Park.
Residents nearby may experience noise and vibration from crews and equipment. Construction workers and sub-contractors are oriented, trained and consistently reminded to be good neighbours by not slamming tailgates or yelling when working.
Use of equipment like hydro-vac trucks, required to locate utilities and excavate, and activities like hoe-ramming, roller compacting etc. are only done during daytime hours. Light plants, generators and compressors are placed onsite and as far away from neighbouring homes to the extent possible and are wrapped with Echo Barriers. Street sweeping and dust suppression will be ongoing as needed this fall then transitioning to snow removal and winter maintenance. Trucks will only use approved haul routes.
Future work is required in this area. Additional construction updates, such as changes to work sequencing and the duration or impact of this work will be communicated via the Stage 2 project e-newsletter.
