Notice of Night Work – Hunt Club Rail Bridge

Feb 12, 2021 - By Sue McCarthy

We received a notice from Councillor Brockington that construction of the Hunt Club Rail-over-Road Bridge as part of the Stage 2 O-Train Trillium Line South Extension Project is ready to proceed.  This will involve night work over the next few weeks, planned to be completed by February 24, 2021.

Work is being conducted at night to reduce impacts to vehicular traffic, including emergency vehicles. To maintain safety, cycle lanes on both sides of Hunt Club Road through the work zone will remain closed for the duration of this work due to increased truck traffic and the presence of heavy construction equipment. Cyclists and pedestrians will be required to adhere to signage.

Work will be conducted every night pending inclement weather and schedule changes. The utmost consideration for residents’ well-being has been considered in planning this activity and everyone involved is committed to this project advancing smoothly and with respect for everyone’s comfort and safety.

Anticipated Impacts:

  • Cycle lanes on both sides of Hunt Club Road through the work site will remain closed for the duration of this work due to increased truck traffic and heavy construction equipment. Cyclists will be required to adhere to signage and share the lane with other traffic.
  • Although construction noise is not expected to exceed 85 decibels at the site of activity, reducing to 56 decibels at 30 metres from the site, the public will experience noise and some vibration associated with construction activity. Efforts will be made to avoid directing light toward residences.
