Traffic related concerns due to construction
The City of Toronto is committed to public safety and in maintaining its infrastructure in an efficient manner. The City also recognizes that road repairs and closing any intersection for any length of time has a tremendous impact on all road users.

The City is in a difficult position of having to address its capital repair needs while dealing with growth and competing road use interests across the City. We work to adjust signal timings to allow for greater movement on other streets and respect the wishes of the community without heavy traffic by trying to divert traffic to busier roads. Moving the work to night time hours is applied where appropriate and feasible. There are numerous factors that are considered with respect to working at night time including the safety of the public as well as additional financial costs.

While the City sympathizes with commuters' frustrations in being delayed, we owe it to all road users to provide infrastructure that keeps transit moving and roads that are in better condition.
