Reconstruction and resurfacing work begins on Yonge Street
  
Works and Emergency Services -- A reconstruction project and a resurfacing
project will take place on Yonge Street from early October until late November.

The first project involves reconstructing Yonge Street from Dundas Street to
Grosvenor Street. This will involve the replacement of the asphalt and concrete
road bed on Yonge Street from Dundas Street to Carlton Street, the replacement
of all sidewalks, curbs and gutters on Yonge Street from Dundas Street to
Carlton Street and the replacement of some of the sidewalks, curbs and gutters
on Yonge Street from Carlton Street to Grosvenor Street.

The work will be performed in three stages: the east side of Yonge Street from
Gould Street to Alexander Street; the west side of Yonge Street from Dundas
Street to Grosvenor Street; and the east side of Yonge Street from Dundas
Street to Gould Street.

During construction, one half of the road will be closed for construction and
the other half used for traffic in both directions. All areas will be restored
to their original condition once construction is complete.

The second project will see Yonge Street resurfaced from Lake Shore Boulevard
to Richmond Street, including replacement of the asphalt surface and
replacement of the existing brick and mortar sidewalks with concrete sidewalks,
curbs and gutters.

The work will be performed in two stages with one half of the roadway closed
for construction and the other half used for traffic in both directions. All
areas will be restored to their original condition once construction is
complete.

Work hours for both projects will take place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to
Friday. Some late night and weekend work will also be performed.

Access to bus and subway stops as well as businesses, churches and residences
will be provided at all times during the construction period at both locations.
