Night Work on Bloor Street near Resurrection Road

Work Duration: Friday April 20, 2018; 10 p.m. – 5 a.m.

Overnight work will be conducted on Friday April 20 from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. for drilling and installation of street lighting in the area of Bloor Street and Resurrection Road. The work requires use of one lane of traffic on the north side of Bloor St.

This work needs to be conducted overnight (between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. the following day) due to current limited capacity of Bloor St (related to construction in eastbound lanes) and high day time traffic volumes.

East/west vehicular travel along Bloor St. will be maintained. All efforts will be made to help reduce noise, but in some cases this may be unavoidable. This work is expected to be completed by the morning of April 21.

Following more than 10 years of planning, consultation, engineering, and design, the City of Toronto began construction to reconfigure the Six Points intersection in March 2017. The reconfiguration supports the development of Etobicoke Centre as a vibrant mixed-use transit-oriented community and the design features:

  • a new road network and at-grade intersection at Dundas, Bloor, and Kipling
  • complete Streets, with improved pedestrian facilities, wide boulevards, trees, street furniture, improved access to Kipling Subway Station, cycling facilities and separated bike lanes installed on all major streets
  • new land available for potential uses such as parkettes, public art installations, development, and other amenities
  • a district energy¬†plan
