As part of the Stage 2 O-Train Light Rail Transit (LRT) project, KEV will be pursuing their concrete pour program throughout the winter months in the Byron Tunnel and Parkway Tunnels. The cold weather will require heaters to properly cure the concrete and will be required to operate overnight.
WHAT: Overnight activity in the Byron and Parkway Tunnels, at various locations.
WHEN: Monday, November 28, 2022, throughout the winter, until March 31, 2023. This is in addition to daytime activities on weekdays and weekends.
WHY: Fueling, equipment maintenance and servicing, and site housekeeping, installation and maintenance of heaters and tarps required to ensure that any concrete that is poured can cure properly, as well as the installation of form work for tunnel walls and roof.
WHERE: Byron Tunnel, Woodland Avenue to Allison Avenue, and north of Richmond and Redwood Avenue, adjacent to 727 Richmond Avenue.
Parkway Tunnel, behind Fraser Avenue, east to Rochester Field
ANTICIPATED IMPACTS Night work is required to fuel, service and maintain equipment, and to meet the schedule on this large and complex project. Heaters are required to maintain a consistent temperature for any poured concrete and forms during the colder winter months. Generators required to run the heaters will be in the tunnels or wrapped in noise barriers.
Site lighting is required to maintain safe working conditions for workers. The use of lights will be minimized where possible and special attention paid to ensure that it is not impacting nearby residences at surface.
The construction work outlined in this notice is subject to change. Work may be delayed or extended due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
