At the present time, the City’s contractor is working on The Queensway (west of Sunnyside Avenue) towards Parkside Drive, which the east limit of the work zone. Crews are also finalizing work on King Street West (south of Queen Street West) to approximately 100 metres further south and at the KQQR intersection proper.

Previous delays, combined with some periods of adverse fall/winter weather, COVID-19 related labour shortages and supply chain issues have deferred completion of Stage 2 work (KQQR intersection, The Queensway and King Street West) to September 3, 2022.

Work on Stage 3 (the final stage) will start on Roncesvalles Avenue from the KQQR intersection to Harvard Avenue on September 4, 2022, and will be completed by the end of December 2022.
