As part of the Stage 2 O-Train Light Rail Transit (LRT) project, crews and equipment will 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.
What: Night work is required from the area of Lincoln Fields Station, Carling Avenue, and 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.
When: As required, between 10:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. April through June 2022.
Why: To complete critical project work that is time sensitive and/or required during off-peak hours.
Where: Lincoln Fields Station area and on Carling Avenue, Connaught Park, along the Transitway, up to Iris Station area (Pinecrest Creek Corridor)
Residents nearby may experience noise and vibration from crews and equipment. Construction workers are oriented, trained and consistently reminded to be good neighbours by not slamming tailgates or yelling when working. Use of equipment like vac trucks, required to locate utilities and excavate, and activities like hoe-ramming, roller compacting etc. are 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.
Trucks will only use approved haul routes. Dust control will be in place, as needed, as well as street sweeping or snow clearing.
The safety of the public and workers is paramount, and we thank you for your patience during construction.
Accessibility is an important consideration for the Stage 2 LRT project. The Stage 2 team makes every effort to provide access through and around construction sites. If you require special accommodation, please contact email@example.com.
Residents should be aware that throughout 2022, there will be an increased requirement for nightwork across the alignment. A weekly summary of nightwork will also be shared at the outset of each week. If you would like to be included in the weekly updates, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the distribution list.
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.
