The construction work will result in:
- Full pavement and sidewalk replacement

- Reconfiguration of ramps onto Royal York Rd. from Dundas St. W. and Lambeth Rd.
- Replacement of sanitary sewer, storm sewer and watermain where required

This project is part of the Etobicoke York District Technical Services 2011 Capital Works program.
Disruptions During Construction
In order to complete the work effectively and in a safe manner, Royal York Road will be restricted to narrow single lane conditions to allow for sewer and watermain construction. Emergency vehicle, garbage truck, TTC bus and Wheel-Trans access will be maintained. The contractor will further notify you of any temporary disruptions including temporary closure of private driveways. The City will make arrangements for parking on side streets at times when driveway access has been interrupted.
The Solid Waste Collection Division of the City requests that all solid waste and recyclable materials be at road side no later than 7:00 a.m. on pickup day. Please continue to use City of Toronto waste/recycling receptacles during the construction period. We ask that you please mark these receptacles for easy identification as they may be moved by the Contractor to a central pickup point during construction.
During water service replacement, water supply will be occasionally interrupted with 24 hour written notice given by the contractor. Every effort will be made to reduce inconvenience to area residents. The City appreciates your understanding and co-operation.
Community Information Open House
A public open house took place on February 16, 2011 at St. Giles Kingsway Church. Many residents attended, reviewed design drawings and spoke with project staff.
View materials and from the open house: (PDF).
Following the Open House, the City decided that the detailed design will now go forward with an average road width of 16.1m to accommodate bike-friendly lanes with the potential for future bike lanes when passed by Council.
Following construction, an edge line will be painted on both sides of the newly constructed roadway to extend the existing edge line south of Usher Avenue up to Ashley Road.
Transportation will adjust the signal timing at the Humbertown traffic lights to allow better northbound traffic flow during peak hours.
Other road design elements will be completed generally as presented at the open house.
