OVERNIGHT WORK - GO TRANSIT TRACK RELOCATION

November 28, 2018

 

 

WHAT WORK IS TAKING PLACE?

Crews will be working in the rail corridor constructing the GO Transit diversion track to the east of their current position. Work will begin as early as mid-December 2018 for approximately 4-6 weeks. Overnight and weekend work will be required to complete this phase of work. Diversion track construction work involves grading the existing ground, relocating the existing track panels, saw-cutting and drilling rail, as well as surfacing, ballast placement/regulating, and thermite welding. Portions of the work will require compaction by means of mechanical roller causing vibrations.

TIMING

 Beginning as early as mid-December 2018 for approximately 4-6 weeks. In addition to normal working hours, overnight work (7pm-5am), and weekend work will be required.

 Work may be rescheduled due to weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances.

 

 

WHAT TO EXPECT

 Nearby residents and businesses can expect noise in the area caused by saw-cutting, drilling rail, surfacing, ballast placement/regulating, thermite welding, and other construction equipment, as well as dust from drilling activity and debris removal.

 In addition to construction activity, residents can expect to see equipment and material storage.
