The roadway construction work this summer includes:• building a temporary north-south road through Harry W. Arthurs Common;• widening a portion of the south arm of York Boulevard, (south side of the Common) west of Ian Macdonald Boulevard; and• constructing a temporary roadway to parallel the south arm of York Boulevard east of Ian Macdonald Boulevard to James Gillies Street (along which traffic will be diverted during the subway station construction).Construction of these temporary roadways is expected to be completed in early September 2010.Due to the nature of the work, motorists may face traffic delays. We regret any inconvenience that may be caused as a result of this work.Construction vehicles will access the campus via York Boulevard to and from Keele Street. During deliveries of construction material and equipment, traffic movement on York Boulevard and Keele Street may be delayed or limited to a reduced speed. Your patience during this time is greatly appreciated.Traffic control personnel will be on campus to facilitate the safe movement of pedestrian, transit and vehicular traffic around the construction work areas. All existing roads will remain open and operational during the temporary road works.For construction related inquiries please contact TYSSE’s Construction Liaison, Christina Joseph, [email protected].
